Home Improvements and Future Plans


homeA brief report on the status of things, as I’ve been working on the blog (instead of sleeping).

My busman’s holiday is almost over, and in september, I plan to do some major work on Karavansara, tightening the schedule and improving the blog.
When I started Karavansara I did not have a clear plan – I just wanted to jump into the action and try my hand at blogging in English, after seven years as a blogger in my native language, Italian*.
Now the shakedown run is almost over.
The home improvements I started in these days will go on in september, october and november, and by its first birthday this blog will be fully funcional and cruising at full tilt.

As of now…

. Karavansara now has its own mail account – I can’t promise a prompt reply (news travel slowly through the desert), but if really there’s something you can’t tellm or ask me publicly in a comment, now you can mail here…


. Karavansara now features a dedicated Twitter account – you can follow this blog @KaravansaraBlog

. a Zemanta account and plugin should grant better contents, more options, links and stuff on future posts

. we are getting listed in Technorati

. I’m are now on Wattpad, which might be a fun way to distribute some of my stuff

. I’ve been toying with Plinky, a fun web-service that provides daily prompts for posts… but Karavansara refuses to share contents with Plinky (or viceversa) so I’ll have to do without**

In the meantime, the Karavansara Facebook Page is getting a lot of visits (but not many likes, alas!***), and the Karavansara Pinterest Board is featuring hundreds of wonderful photographs and links.

Not bad.
More’s to come.


* I still blog in Italian, on strategie evolutive and on Il Futuro è Tornato
** But writing prompts are something I’d like to feature somehow in Karavansara. I’ll have to work on a few ideas.
*** Yes, you might drop by and gives us a Thumbs Up. It would be nice of you. Thanks in advance.

  1. All of the above are good news, let’s hope for a major break in the english-speaking market. 🙂
