Part of the reason I haven’t been too productive recently in my writing has been that I’m working my way through my backlog of posts and importing them into WordPress. Previously they had all been saved as Markdown files for a Jekyll site I was using, and as part of the process, I’m also editing and reformatting them to fix plenty of spelling and grammar mistakes that slipped through the net the first time.
One of the things I want to accomplish in 2021 is to write more. And just by luck I stumbled on a rather cool initiative on Mastodon the other day: #100DaysToOffload.
With 2020 being a year that has seen almost everything normal being turned upside down, including our lives, I thought it might be high time for me to make good use of the free time I find myself with and get around to some spring-cleaning on the site. So hopefully I can give a brief update on how things have been for me so far in 2020 and how I’m hoping the site evolves in the foreseeable future. So let’s get started shall we.
There are two types of blog posts in this world:
- posts about not posting;
- and posts about changing a blog’s backend.
Unfortunately this post isn’t going to be any different since I’m going to talk about the slight change I’ve had to make to the backend of my blog. Don’t worry though, it’s not going to be overly long or technical!
So the first thing you might notice if you’ve been here before is that the site looks vastly different from before. Previously I was running it on an instance of Ghost 0.4.1. The second thing you might notice is that the site is no longer hosted on kibayanse.com, but rather a vanity URL – terrancebrown.me
