Me, e-publishing and Kafka

Posted on September 4, 2015 at 5:47 2 Comments

Always keen to show that I am at the forefront of technology ;-), a little while ago I thought I would try my hand at an ebook. Writing it took a bit of time, but ebooks can be any length, so my book is quite short - only 16,000 words. The actual process of publishing it on Amazon was amazingly easy - it took about 30 minutes and was very simple. Now my book on Kafka - a short, hopefully readable, fun and interesting take on his work - is on amazon and available across the world. …


Slowing Getting Moving

Well, we have made it to 10 members (!) and made progress in a number of other ways. I have incorporated planning alerts for Hampton into the frontpage of the site as well as fix-my-street (which does not seem to be much used in this area at the moment!). I have also added Google Analytics so I can see how many visits the site gets and where they come from. Plus on Hugh's advice I have added the site to Facebook and wikipedia and created a twitter feed based on the RSS recent activities stream.… Continue

Getting Things Started

Yesterday I met John Inglis and his partner Jill and had a long discussion with them about setting up a community website for Hampton. John is the driving force behind http://www.hampton-online.co.uk/ and has spent nearly 12 years creating websites to help the local community. He was very happy to offer any assistance he could, but his experience did highlight some potential problems.

I will indeed! And I have sent the link to many neighbours and I am sure some of them will sign up!

Thanks Paul, I will get around to uploading a pic and I'm looking forward to meeting some other members soon! I lived on a busy road for a long time and don't know my neighbours as everyone always seems to be out at work - lucky them!

Yes, I have just added it. This site is a really great idea as although I've lived in Hampton for more years than I care to remember, I don't know many people as I've always worked out of this area. It would be very interesting to find out who some of my neighbours are!

Hi Paul, thanks for the welcome, and for your efforts in setting up this site. I have already noted the little chat on good pubs and enjoyed a pleasant meal at the Bell, watched the river slip by i the summer rain as I ate and imbibed. Cheers.

you're right in both counts, I love the site, well dine and I did have trouble with my usual account when I logged in from another PC.
I won't use the newest account in future.
Best wishes
