    Hey everyone.

    My name is Chris Martucci (I spelled my last name wrong in my username), and I write a blog about technology, organization, and the liberal arts. I just moved my blog from Tumblr to WordPress, and I'm loving it here!

    Let me know what you think. :)

    Nice site. However, you might want to do some research on how to link articles from others on your site. At first I thought all the post were from you and when I clicked on some of them I was surprised to see that I was taken to other media sites. I'm not a legal eagle but it can be a problem sometimes. Perhaps on the posts that you are linking to another's site, first stating what publishers name, date, link and then the short summary of the article. Just a thought and something to seriously consider.

    Hmm. Thanks for the feedback. I didn't think that what I was doing was a problem. Check out Daring Fireball, Shawn Blanc, Brooks Review, and Hypertext.

    My linked posts are distinguished from my articles by several features:

    1. The linked titles are in the same format as any other link -- blue font with a dotted underline.
    2. There is a right arrow at the end of every linked title, signifying that the title is an outbound link.
    3. Most linked items start immediately with a block quote pulled from the original article, preceded by the author's name
    4. Articles are in a larger font and could not be confused with a linked-list-item.

    Also, just to avoid confusion, all of the posts are indeed written by me. Some posts are COMMENTS written about the link in the title.
