Joshua Whiting

learner, writer, creator, librarianish person

Welcome to joshuaw.xyz, my home at the end of the internet.

My name is Joshua Whiting (he/they). I am a dad, a husband, a media specialist / librarianish person in the educational technology department of a school district, a sometimes writer, and maybe some other things.

I want to learn about, write, and make more things, and I wanted a place of my own to put those things, so I created this site. This is my main venue for creative activity and publication on the internet.

You can scroll down for links to recent notes, or find a menu of additional features by clicking on the [ + ] sign in the top right corner of this web page.

Thanks for visiting.

‘Album Released’ notifications might be my favorite phone notifications.

These are:

  • two of my favorite albums
  • two of my favorite albums to listen to on vinyl, that I own on vinyl1
  • two of my favorite albums that sound like spring to me, though I can’t say why2
  • two of my favorite albums that I am listening to on vinyl right now, and noting on my website on this day, for these reasons

I went to Little Dell a month ago, and this is what it was like.

  1. Updated the home page of this site today, adding prominent links to RSS feeds, a gallery of recent post images, and returning a link to the “Featured / Longer Things” post collection. Now I need to update the front matter of all the other missing posts that belong in that “featured” collection.

And with the images back I feel like I should start taking and posting more photographs of things other than just screenshots and shit I bought.

I had in mind a new reading update rule for 2022 - I wasn’t going to post a reading update about any book (neither here nor on Goodreads) until I was at least 10-15% of the way into the book.

But I forgot my rule, and now the books I barely started and haven’t continued to read are hanging over my head, and I hate all you big invisible jerks for holding me silently accountable for every random thing I post here.
