My blogs

My main blog, BalancedLight was first setup as the Des Paroz on the go blog around 2002. Nowdays it is a place for me to publish my photographs as well as to write about my personal views on making photographs, writing, diving and travel.

This site, Micro Thoughts, is my Micro.Blog site, and serves as a link blog and a home for short thoughts, particularly on productivity, technology and photography. It acts as a complementary site to BalancedLight.

I also have an experimental blog, Words by Des Paroz, that uses the interesting Blot.im blogging engine, and acts as a mirror of BalancedLight.

Posts are generally written using Markdown format in Manton Reece’s Micro.blog apps on macOS and iOS.
