Lately I’ve been very interested in reclaiming my content from all of the various platforms I’ve put stuff on over the years. For a long time I would put posts like this up on Medium and post it separately to Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
But the home base was never mine.
So I am establishing a new home base for my text based content. And from here I’ll be linking out to all of my other stuff vs. the other way around.
I initially built this with a really neat open source project/app called Hugo. What I liked about Hugo is that it goes back to the simpler days of the web where plain old HTML is served up vs. some prone to hacking blogging engine that will need constant updates.
The problem is that it was a real pain to work with. Image processing was a mess and a real manual process. I couldn’t just drop something in. And I had to re-sync everything and run a process every time I made a small change.
WordPress is a little more than I need but it’ll work for this project insofar as workflow is concerned.
I’m not sure how often I’ll post here but I am going to be experimenting with automation to see what cool things I can do with this.
