Twenty Nineteen

No, not the WordPress theme, just a slightly longer title than the numeric equivalent.

My goals in 2019 are as follows:

The blogging part is once I’ve written about umpteen times, but I think I’ve figured out why. I always loved the idea of doing long weekly columns, but I now realise that isn’t hw I think, so expecting myself to keep up with that was never going to happen.

I’m much more sporadic, sometimes random, and to the point. So having a blog engine that lets me be quick and experiment with different ways to share stuff is a must. I could just use WordPress, but I stare at WP code for a living. Instead, I’ve gone with Jekyll, as I can extend it as much as I like, and having all the posts in a plain text format gives me comfort.

My goal over the next few days is to change up the design of the standard theme to something s bit more me, and built in things like link posts and videos, so I can start using this for what it’s meant for.

Unitl next time!


Update: I’ve gone back to WordPress. I realised that over 10 years of experience means I can make WP do as I please, easily.
