Finally launched the new site for Olisto on I learned a lot about WordPress, SCSS, Jquery and PHP in the last couple of weeks. This will definitely help me with next steps for my own site!

@sanderdatema Mja, dat weet ik nog niet. Ik begin de kracht van WordPress en met name het ecosysteem wel te waarderen en ben er steeds meer in thuis. Met Jekyll begin ik nu de grenzen te ontdekken qua snelheid van publiceren en aanpassen.

De afgelopen tijd heb ik me verdiept en actief gewerkt met (voor mij nieuwe) webconcepten als SASS en CSS Grid. Wat een waanzinnig mooie mogelijkheden en wat een uitdagingen op designvlak. 2019 wordt het jaar om los te breken van de blok-gebaseerde WordPress themes. Tijd voor meer diversiteit in webdesign!

Elke editie zit vol met links die het waard zijn om door te klikken!

“The one wonderful thing about blogging from your laptop is that you don’t have to deal with other people. You can broadcast alienated, disembodied, disassociated murmurings into a people-free void. You don’t have to run something past an editor, or frame your argument to an established group of subscribers. You just say what the hell you want.”

— Andrew Sullivan in Slate (2002)

It was a simpler time.

yet a non-descript, sentimental reindeer is about to discover the true meaning of loneliness... in the Twilight Zone.

I just noticed an instance that requires a pro-account ($$) to get third party access through other apps, and some more features. And of course support the existence of the instance. Quite an interesting way if you think about it.

What was I thinking, booting up a Digital Ocean droplet to see if I can move my blog from Github pages to a server I can actually SSH into... I've been busy the whole evening with installing, updating, yak shaving ( and reading documentation on ssh keys and such.... argh...

@BartG95 Dat weet ik. Het ging me specifiek om de mogelijkheden die github biedt om via hun API verloren commits terug te vinden. Mischien is de woordkeuze niet scherp genoeg.

Je kunt de eerste paar posts van mijn oude blog teruglezen. Weinig verheffends en meer archivering dan historische waarde.

Indiewebcamp Berlijn en mijn oude posts terug. • Digging the digital

@KaptainRio I usually wait 24 hours before installation just to be safer that no issues are reported, so all going well tomorrow I will upgrade everyone.

A full day with work and hardly any thoughts and readings around fun stuff like the Indieweb and decentralization. Anything I missed and should read? Hit me up people!

Today's lesson: Medium is bad. They've suspended our account and blocked access to all our published stories for bogus reasons and with only 12 hours notice.

So Fediverse... Any interesting people or bots I should follow? Interests: indieweb, digital privacy, streetart and loud music. In no particular order.
