About this site

What is its purpose, how does it work, how do I create it…

Discovery • Reflection • Efficacy

Those three words describe my practice—the journey of my whole life. As a part of my practice, this blog has a specific purpose: It’s a vehicle for my process of reflection. I write, here, because I am still learning… still trying to listen:

I used to think I wrote because there was something I wanted to say. Then I thought, “I will continue to write because I have not yet said what I wanted to say”; but I know now I continue to write because I have not yet heard what I have been listening to.

Site Features and Nuance

If you’re simply browsing, (again, welcome! :) take a look at the list of recent posts.

Where are the ads, the side bars of widgets, the sharing controls, the attention grabbing baubles?! I’m glad you noticed. My choice of site design is intentional; it’s my way of demonstrating my respect for your time, Dear Reader.

To help you get around, I’ll mention…

  • There is a search in the ≡ menu at the top.
  • You can follow the newest posts in the Mastodon Fediverse, just search for @craig@constantine.name .
  • Be sure you’ve seen the Guidebook.
  • There are a lot of tags. But you can see all the interesting tags on one page.
  • A large number of my posts are “threaded” together into series. You’ll notice this if you land on such a post; it will have links to follow the series, in addition to the usual links to move in date-posted order. There is also a page listing all the series.
  • There’s a surprising [to me] amount of photography here. The best-of-the-best are shown on the Featured Photography page.
  • You can also jump to a random post.
  • If you’ve read this far, you probably want to also read the posts tagged “meta.”

This is a page from my Guidebook.
