- The China Travelogue and photos from the wedding of my friends Ryan and Sara are separate 'weblogs'.
- Everything on the main page is powered by one weblog. The resume, is, at the moment, a static template with the main page's 'weblog'. It will soon be a separate 'weblog', with each job, project and skill a separate entry. HTML that repeats often throughout the site (like the sidebar nav, DOCTYPE declaration and hidden PHP code that sets the
charsetin the HTTP header) are template modules.
- The Portland photos are not a weblog, but a home-grown PHP script. It'll be converted to MT sometime in August, same with photos from my most recent trip there.

Here are some changes to my sidebar of links. If there is a greater-than sign inside the square brackets, that means there's an extra quip about that link. Clicking on the greater-than sign will take you to that quip with possible extra links, and doing a mouseover the greater-than sign will show the quip in a tooltip. (Mozilla still has that annoying little bug where it shows only a portion of the tooltip.) Any link with a number sign (#) in between square brackets means there is no quip. Both the greater-than sign and the number sign function as permalinks for that, er, link.
Here is the template code for the sidebar. It requires the MTIfEmpty plugin, and you can adjust the filename it generates for the permalinks as suited to your blog.
There is a good tutorial on creating a sideblog using MT at scriptygoddess.com.
