Blog - Exploring regression on the El Niño data

I've started some of the writing of the details about regression with a sparsity-inducing prior on Blog - Exploring regression on the El Niño data. Even that bit isn't finished and comprehensible yet:

  1. The graphing program I'm using is sometimes getting some corner details of the contours wrong, and in general the graphs could probably be made a little bit nicer if I work some more on them. I'll probably try to do that when more of the other stuff is finished.

  2. I need to figure out clearer language.

  3. I actually need to write the program and run it on some cloud platform to get results, which is the much bigger task!

A couple of practical questions for John:

  1. There are some 3-side-by-side graphs, but maybe given the blog is so narrow they ought to be 3 stacked vertically?
  2. After the last blog article you and Andrew Stacey seemed to figure out how to do markdown blogs on wordpress. Is it the case I can write everything other than hyperlinks/images in markdown format now, or should I html-ize things?

EDIT: looks like the forum didn't like the [ [ link ] ] to the blog, so changed it to a longer link.

    Thanks for starting to write this blog post, David! I'll try to help you with point 2 on your first list. But for now, your second list:

    1) For the blog, it's always better to have multi-part figures stacked vertically, so they can be as big as possible on the blog. The blog is just 450 pixels wide, so something like

    <div align = "center"> <img width = "450" src = "figure_file.jpg"> </div>

    is a good way to format images files.

    2) Yes, you can now use either html or markdown for blog articles on wordpress, whatever you prefer! Try not to push your use of either system to the maximum extreme of sophistication...

    In addition to fixing the link in the original post, I've made some more minor changes. But there's still a long way to go on both the written and the unwritten text to make it comprehensible!

    I'll wait a while before trying to read it, since I'm pretty busy. Just let me know when you want feedback.
