There’s an archive of George Orwell’s essays in English and Russian language at http://www.orwell.ru/library/essays. I found the archive last week when searching for a full-text version of Politics and the English Language (1946) to re-read, which contains Orwell’s famous six rules for clear writing. These rules are touchstones for writers or editors and feature in the introduction to The Economist’s style guide.

I’m considering starting a new blog focused on music and guitars – something that’s informal, fun for me and personal. One thing I decided is that I won’t build the blog using WordPress. I’m going to learn a new blogging platform, one which is lightweight, simple and requires very little maintenance. Postach.io, a blogging platform that uses content stored in Evernote, is top of my list.
