Hi

Many years ago I ran a book blog, life got on top of me and I had to stop, I'm now hoping to start it up again. I have it in my head that Literature and Latte used to have an awesome blog template.
Am I imagining it?
Does it still exist?
If not, can anyone recommend another template, more specifically a post template for book blogs?

Thanks

Louise

Gee Vic, that wasn't very helpful.

Hi Louise. I can go only one step further: look at Wordpress.

Well, it's as helpful as I intend t' be ... cos, if I offered technical help to anyone, it would result in motherboard meltdown, hard-drive seizure, and the steady drip-drop-tinkle-tinkle of pixels falling from their screen, until it resembled nothing more than a hazy starry night ... like my poor old iMac Image :cry: :cry:

Anyway, babe, I was asking if Louise had done a search of Scriv's fora (<-- that's a posh word for forums, like wot they use on the upper decks), not World Wide Wotchymacallithingy 'tinternet. If she does a Scriv search using the appropriate search terms, that only she knows best, she could unearth what she's looking for :wink: ,

Ah, I am merely a subordinate to your intelligence!!

We can hope that Louise responds with her findings and sets up a quick blog. She'll have at least two devoted readers here!

Most Scriveners are congenital fundamentalists, and can't handle 'tongue-in-cheek', irony, satire ' etc., etc.

Take care,

I do seem to recall there being one, but I thought it was user-created? It rings a bell, but I'm not finding an official Scrivener one.

Thats why I asked if she'd done a search (Scriv search) with 'thread specific' search terms. Every time I do a search I end up miles away, reading all kings of unrelated threads. I've just bought David Hewson's first two novels in his Pieter Vos, Amsterdam detective series, as a consequence of reading viewtopic.php?f=1&t=13158&hilit=Scrivener+Blog+Template&start=15
Carrying on like this could cost me a fortune. Anyway, Louise seems to have moved on. Probably time we did too. :?
Take care

I did find a number of ways of organizing various blog posts with a Scrivener project, which is giving me the itch to blog again. But blogging is work--one has to not only write posts, but also do promotion. I'm notoriously bad at self-promotion. It seems like creative types are expected to wear all hats these days: produce content, market content, publish content, etc. A friend of mine, another composer, was remarking that with many grants, you're expected to be a social worker, as well. (That is, what kind of community outreach you're doing in addition to getting a piece performed.)
