My del.icio.us autism

Quite often as a I read stories and blogs about autism, I find something that I want to return to later or that I want to note with a short comment but don’t have the time nor inclination to blog.  So I’ve been trying to use Delicious, the social bookmarking site, to help me do that.  Because I thought that the people who subscribe to and read this blog might be interested in what I’m bookmarking, I used the Link Splicer feature in FeedBurner to include my bookmarks in my FeedBurner feed for this blog.  Which worked fine, except….

I had failed to take into account how this would impact my feed’s presence on the Autism Hub‘s own feed.  Apparently,  because the Hub feed is set up as an aggregator and not RSS a simple link to the site I bookmarked – instead of a link that showed the bookmark link along with my comments – is what Hub subscribers saw.  (I must admit, I never click the links for my own posts in the Hub feed 😉  So, I’ve disabled the Link Splicer feature to alleviate this problem.

If you are interested in my delicious autism feed, there are three ways you can see it:

  1. I have added my delicious autism feed as a widget on the blog site, so you can see it there.
  2. You can visit my delicious autism tag page.
  3. You can subscribe to the my delicious autism RSS feed, and get it in your feed reader of choice.

Blog maintenance (mostly) complete

Back in January I started the process of remodeling 29 Marbles, and today I announce the completion of that remodeling (to the extent that any blog is ever really complete). A couple of things you will likely notice:

  • 29 Marbles has moved from its home on Blogger its own address at http://autism.gbrettmiller.com, and I’ve switched from Blogger to WordPress. I did this for several reasons, but mostly I was taking my own advice to “own my data”.
  • The feed for 29 Marbles is still http://feeds.feedburner.com/29Marbles, so you should not lose your subscription. (I think you may have received a feed “refresh” of the last few posts, but that should be OK.)
  • The left hand column is for information related directly to 29 Marbles, such as the search function, feed subscription, and category lists.
  • The right hand column includes feeds from and links to other autism related resources. Although I definitely have my own opinion about certain things, I also think it is important to see others’ views. That’s why I’ve included feeds to the Autism Hub and Age of Autism, along with links to blogs by parents and autistics from I expect that this side will continue to grow.

I hope you’ll continue to read 29 Marbles and offer the great comments and discussions that arise from the very important topic of autism, what it means, and where we’re going. See you on April 2.
