My blogs

My main blog, BalanceLight was first setup as the Des Paroz on the go blog around 2002. It is a place for me to write about my personal views on a range of topics—particularly on making photographs, writing and presenting.

BalancedLight is my longform blog that contains topical posts on writing, photography and presentation workflows. BalancedLight is a self-hosted Wordpress site.

This site, Micro Thoughts, is my Micro.Blog site, and serves as a link blog, photo blog and a home for short sharp thoughts. 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 the excellent Byword and Ulysses apps on macOS and iOS, as well as Drafts on iOS.
