Rebuilding everything

Post date: Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Mostly unseen

It doesn’t look like I’m making a lot of progress on my rebuilding project but I am.

I’ve been working on building the WordPress theme templates, custom post types, custom fields and other bits like that. I’ve got some odd things going on with loops and categories that I need to sort out. Along with that I’m working out how I’ll be using images on here (that’s why there aren’t photos yet despite my habit of photographing everything).

It’s not exciting to look at yet but it’s got to get done.

  1. I used to be fearless

    Back when I first started and up until a few years ago, I was fearless. I used to be able to write posts easily and hit publish without worrying about it. That’s different now. I’m not sure exactly when or how but things changed. I got quiet. I stopped posting. I took down my site. I deleted […]

  2. More rebuilding

    While I’ve been working to get this site back up, I’ve also been doing a lot of rebuilding in other places. I’m working on getting used to blogging again. I’m trying to get used to publishing more than just 140 characters or a photo with a short caption. I used to do this all the […]

  3. Reading list – 8/9/2014

    I read a lot of articles. I share a lot of articles. I’m going to start compiling lists of my favorites and posting them here weekly-ish. HTTPS as a ranking signal - In case you missed it, Google is changing the way they rank pages and sites, again. Tweetstorm: How a UX Generalist is more valuable […]

  4. On Web Typography

    I just received my copy of “On Web Typography” by Jason Santa Maria, released by A Book Apart this week. I’ve already started reading it. So far, I’m enjoying it. I’ve seen Jason Santa Maria speak at An Event Apart twice and read the other 10 books from ABA. He was brilliant, the books have […]

Rebuilding

I’ve been online in one form or another since 1996. Through most of that time, I’ve had at least one blog.

A few years ago, I took my blogs offline for various reasons that don’t really need to be part of this first post. I plan to write about some of it soon though. For right now, I’m working on rebuilding everything. A lot of what I had needed to be rebuilt because it was very old. I deleted a lot of other things entirely.

This site is very much a work in progress. Taking an idea from a few other people, I’ve decided to build the site live instead of waiting for it to be “done”. The design will appear over time and sometimes, I’ll break things. It’s a personal site so I’m OK with that. I’ll post about the experience, for what it’s worth. All I can say for right now is that it feels strange to blog again.
