I get lazy with my personal sites. A side-effect of working on the web most days. There’s a strong desire to disconnect.
But… I also open a lot of tabs.
In the past these tabs would’ve been blog posts. Things I found interesting or needed, or wanted to find later. Now, I just close out groups of tabs and briefly remember what I was researching.
Content aside, there’s also the design and code side of the site. It’s time to revisit.
Maybe a post a day is a lofty goal and I’ll fail tomorrow, but it’s some motivation.
For the old eightface readers, there’s a posts feed available if you’d only like to see longer form stuff and not the life updates.
Created a record collection page. It’s pretty raw at the moment, mostly spitting out the text lists I made while yak shaving the other night.
My blog turned 18 last week. It’s now old enough to vote. I marked the occasion by moving it from eightface.com to davekellam.com ???
Sorted out how to generate a post title and slug from the body content when you save a post. Useful for micro blogs that don’t really need the title field.
So it seems underscores currently has a platform agnostic solution for sass. Will need to sort out something to generate the css, one of my gulp or grunt scripts, or maybe just CodeKit for now.
Added a colophon to the site
I am remembering the use of animated gifs to indicate that your site was under construction. Is that still a thing?
Posted to Twitter for the first time in a long time tonight. Part of starting to post here. Will sort out how to crosspost at some point.
A rough guide for setting up WordPress as a microblog. It’s definitely possible to do with default themes and off-the-shelf components. I’m going to dork out and customize it. The source will be available.
