How cool is this? Since I started using Twitter again — gradually with @NormanMailerSoc and @grlucas — I’ve been posting Project Mailer updates to try to get some traffic. Well, I tried to post the letters I just ported and Twitter did not recognize the full URL. Easy, I thought, I’ll just use a URL shortener. I have an account on Bitly, so that was a natural choice — BAM!

But that’s not the cool part. I poked around a bit in the preferences, and it turns out Bitly allows free accounts to use a vanity URL for all of their shortened URLs! So, I got prmlr.us — how cool is that?! Yeah, I know, but pm.us was taken. So this:

https://projectmailer.net/pm/“A_Series_of_Tragicomedies”:_Mailer’s_Letters_on_The_Deer_Park,_1954–55

turns into this:

https://prmlr.us/07lennon

Which do you like better? Now I just have to come up with a consistent approach to shortening.

It’s a cold, gray day. I think I’ll make chili.
