Thanks to my friend, Sean Sharp (formerly of SWVA, now of the Pacific Northwest) who discovered wptouch WordPress Plug-in on my blog-offspring LoriAnne’s blog (Hoarded Ordinaries–thanks L.A.!) blog and recommended it to me. So those few of you who might want to read Fragments on your smartphone, it is now nicely formatted, comment-capable and fast loading. Try it now!
And, I’m in the process of setting up an easy(er) way to connect audio files (podcasts) to the blog. Soon, you’ll find either a sidebar section, individual post links and/or a tabbed page for the purpose of directing you to the ear-based visit to Fragments.
I’ll provide easy access to WVTF radio essays, passages from Slow Road Home (which can come from the Radio Readers file produced in 2007 at the radio station) and passages from Floyd Press pieces, Fragments, and some new unpublished stuff.
The end product after offering these files in bits and pieces may be a 90 minute CD of grampa tales, natural history-local sense of place narratives, front porch musings and other lies that–if I can swing it–will be interspersed with some local music clips from Floyd County musicians.
I should have the first audio offering for you as soon as I’m sure I set up the ftp folder like I should. Don’t want any DOPE SLAP moments here.
