Am experimenting with the Quickpost Plugin for WordPress. Nice feature is that it works more or less the same as Tumblr. Not so nice is that I have to hack around a bit to get it straight.

It appears that QuickPost-it doesn’t need hacking around much. Just by coincidence I tried it again and it worked fine. This means I can fade out Chair Blog | Tumblr and fade in here with QuickPost-it. Hurray!
