New Blog!

December 15, 2017

Yep, it’s a new blog written from the ground up by me. Simple, neat, (hopefully) effective.

I finally got around to doing the one thing I always told myself I'd do: ditch Wordpress in favor of my own homespun blog solution. Not that I had any real beef with Wordpress, I just wanted something a little simpler. And boy oh boy is this a simpler implementation. Super basic stuff running this platform right now. But I think, for the time being, it'll work just fine. Posts are stored in a database, the scripts I've written for my site handle the majority of the layout, all in all pretty straightforward. There's still a few things I'd like to add though. Upcoming feature requests by me for myself in no particular order include:

  • A decent post editor
  • Image uploading features
  • One of those "Click to Share" things on every post
  • A comments section. Maybe.
  • Automated cross-posting from devlogs (no, I haven't written any yet)
  • Autoplaying midi tracks (just kidding)
  • Some sort of tagging system
I'll also probably be making some changes to the general aesthetic, and with those changes edits to the home page. I'm due for a revamp. Since I don't have any comments stuff implemented now (or possibly ever) hit me up on Twitter and tell me what you think!

PS: The header image used to be animated with a rad strobe, but I figured it'd be bad luck to launch a new blog with an seizure-inducing gif.
