Setter’s blogs

The setter’s blog has become something of a feature on a number of solving blogs (which sounds a bit contradictory, I know).  A setter writes a few words about how a puzzle was put together, where the idea came from, and so on.  I’ve done a few myself (here’s one) and, now that I have some webpages to play with, I also have a place to put new ones, namely here.  I’ll wait for solution dates to pass, of course, but shortly thereafter I’ll put up a few comments on the puzzle.  In most cases, I won’t be able to supply you with the puzzle itself, due to copyright reasons.
