Normal service shall now resume…

As of one hour ago, I am now free of my dissertation (well, except for the demonstration). A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders, and I can now get back to implementing some of the ideas that I’ve had for the site. My website folder is literally overflowing with things that can be done to improve, and I’m going to try and blitz through some of them over the next couple of weeks whilst I still have some time before my final exams. There are even three new articles in the works, but I’m not going to tell you what they’re about just yet.

Yesterday I made my first foray into the world of bloglines. Even though I already knew that several people read this blog through the bloglines interface, I’d never really had chance to go and look at it before. But yesterday I did, and I have to say that I’m in love with the references feature. This feature allows you to see a list of all references made from blog entries that bloglines knows about to any given blog entry. If I look at bloglines’ archive of the blog posts, I can immediately see who has referenced any and all of my posts. Admittedly, hardly anyone has referenced my posts and most of the references that have been made are internal references by myself to my previous entries, but I am being linked to from other peoples’ posts occasionally. Most noticeably, it’s my iTunes posts which seem to be being referenced the most. Not really surprising, but interesting nonetheless.

Now, I know that there are other web services available that will give you up to date lists of blog entries and the like which reference particular web pages, but I can’t for the life of me remember where any of them were. Would anybody like to help me out?
