Today (while procrastinating about things that I should’ve been doing), I gave myself a little kick in the butt about this website. As Brian’s Mum would say, I’ve been a
Very naught boy! I’ve barely managed one post every couple of months since I got the site back up and there’s only been one comment in the last 18 months. It’s got to the point where redevelopment of the site is like a running gag in a sitcom or late night show (see “I’m f**king Matt Damon”) with me talking about various things that I want to do but never actually do. Now the time has come to finally fix things.
As we all know, a blog is driven by it’s content. I’ve made a commitment to myself to try and make one post per week. I might not post every single week, but that’s my goal. I will most definitely be posting within the next week because I want to write about that thing that I was procrastinating about. To make things a bit easier, I’ve created a Fluid app solely for my Wordpress Admin area (I’ll be talking more about Fluid and Wordpress at a later date). Hopefully having an app that I can bring up quickly with spotlight will encourage me to write more often.
As for development, I’m still sticking with Wordpress for the immediate future. I’ve previously talked about Django, which is soon going to at Version 1.0 stable release, as a possible alternative but I just don’t have the free time for major development at the moment. What I have done today, is moved the site into a subversion repository because we should all be using version control. SVN will allow me to make incremental changes to the site without worrying about FTP. I’ve also added a few helpful plugins to Wordpress to make my life a little easier.
Will write again soon, until then, hasta luego (because I’m learning Spanish now).
