Hey, You Like Snow?

Here you go, then.

This evening graced us with our first winter advisory, informing us we could expect anywhere between three and five inches of the stuff. Having just driven home in this, I can say with some reasonable authority that three inches has already been achieved, and it’s just a quarter past eight. We’ll see if we can make our way down the driveway in the morning.

Whatever Twitter Feed Now Online

Those of you who follow me on Twitter know that generally speaking my Twitter postings don’t have much to do with what’s going on here at Whatever; they’re mostly my short (and goofy) observations. Well, for those of you who would actually like a Twitter feed for Whatever, now there is one:


It updates when I update here (more or less; it checks in every half hour) and includes the headline and a shortlink back, and covers both proper blog entries and Whateverette links. I think this is a good way to let people use Twitter to keep up with what’s going on here, without turning my own personal Twitter feed into a constant pimp thread.

So, in sum:

Whatever Twitter feed: @blogwhatever.

Personal, generally non-Whatever-oriented Twitter feed: @scalzi.

Enjoy them both in Twitterific splendor.

(The idea to give Whatever its own Twitter feed stolen wholly from the Nielsen Haydens, who have done the same thing for their blog, Making Light.)
