Status Update

For the last while, I haven’t really posted anything on this blog. While I’d like to blame it on coursework or other projects, the truth is that there are many reasons.

Aside from “coursework and other projects”, I’ve also been preparing to switch this blog from WordPress to Jekyll to make it more compact, easier to theme, and more secure. (After all, it’s pretty hard to perform a worthwhile exploit on a site that’s nothing but static HTML and a some JS includes for Disqus, FriendFeed, and AddToAny… especially given some of the security policy extensions on the horizon for HTML)

However, being the perfectionist that I am, I tend to get stuck on sub-problems that, while I can reorder them, must all be done before I can make the switch. (Things like making absolutely certain that no links will break)

To make things simpler, I’ve been working from a known-good export of the blog’s contents and not updating the blog. (Though, as anyone who follows my Identi.ca/Twitter review/rating posts will know, I have continued to work away at the same activities as always)

Given that my switch to Jekyll wasn’t completed before my Christmas vacation, I may reconsider that decision. I have built up quite a backlog of topics to blog on and it’d probably be better for everyone if I just cleared that out and let the switch to Jekyll happen whenever I finally get everything right.

I do still have projects and coursework to do, so I won’t begin posting again right away, and knowing my history with time management, I can’t make any promises, but I’ll try.

  1. Well, I wish you great success with your new blog. A suggestion: Find a way to monetize your blog, like using adsense or promoting affiliate products. To me, that is a worthwhile incentive to keep blogging, aside from the desire for writing and sharing with others that is 🙂

      If only it were that simple. If I hadn’t spent so much time over the last couple of weeks catching up with years of backlogged mess, I’d have posted a fair bit.

      As is, the only thing that takes greater precedence than getting my life in proper order is coursework… and that’s because my living expenses are only paid if I’m studying.
