News & Notes

Are people doing the Insecure Whiners Support Group today?  I figure not that many people will be reading blogs with the holiday this week and all--at least for Canadians (yesterday) and Americans (Friday).  Then again not that many people read my blog anyway, though I've found a solution for how to fix the problem created by the site address change.

When the address changed you probably didn't get updates in your Blogger feed anymore.  Here's how to change that, which you probably already know if you're reading this.

It's a pretty simple 4-step process:



I think I tried to just change the address and that didn't work, which is why I recommend just deleting and putting it in fresh.  Blogger is stupid like that.  Then the blog entries should start to appear in your feed again!

You can also use Steps 1 & 4 to add other Blogger blogs that don't have the Google Friend Connect or whatever.  I did that with Nigel Mitchell and David Walston's blogs so I don't (in theory) have to go to a bookmark of their feed anymore, which should make it easier.

In other news I finally got around to consolidating all of my books into just 3 names.  Now there is only P.T. Dilloway, Patrick Dilloway, and Eric Filler.  And the middle one it would make sense to change it but I haven't felt like going to the trouble of it yet.  Anyway, so every other author you see out there except for those 3 is not me.  Unless this is some weird schizo fantasy where it turns out everyone is really me and I'm imagining this whole thing.  Or you're imagining me.  Or I'm imagining you imagining me...take that M Night Shaymalan!

Mostly the last 10 days or so I've been working on some short stories to be published by my pseudonym.  I'm going to try something a little different and see how it works out.  Probably not much better than most things, but whatever.  It's something to do.  If you want to know what my pseudonym is up to, periodically check out my kick ass publisher website: http://www.planet99-publishing.com/

(Update on that last paragraph:  it sold 2 copies in the US and 2 in the UK in its first day which was enough to make it an International Best Seller on Amazon.  Which I'm sure won't last but is pretty cool.)

And hey, how about that World Cup, right?

  1. Google Plus helps me follow the blogs that use it.
    I have your site, and a few others in a folder on Chrome for easy access.
    Yes I just called you easy...

  3. I've done that, but it still wasn't work. Your blog isn't the only one. One of them I started getting updates again for a while, then they stopped.
    Basically, I try to catch yours on g+ (since I've already stopped using feedly).

  4. I haven't been using blogger for reading blogs lately anyway. Well, I haven't been using anything for that. But I'll try to keep up.

  5. Woo hoo! International best seller...even for a day...is worth it.

    I don't think I could keep track of more than my one pen name. It would give me a complex. Or maybe I AM the pseudonym, and the pseudonym is the real ME!
