I recently found an old cd-r in a box that had a backup of my original blog that I started in 2004 at danroundhill.net (now defunct). I thought it would be a great idea to use XML files for blog entries (🤦🏻♂️)! Of course this became a huge pain to manage. I eventually coded up my own rudimentaryContinue reading “Starting a Blog?

Some of my pals at Automattic created Blog in a Box, which makes it super easy to set up a fully functional WordPress site on a Raspberry Pi. Check it out at inabox.blog!

Had an awesome week in San Francisco meeting and working with folks from Automattic. Great team of people! Looking forward to getting home and being with Sarah and Hazel again. Wrote this post while on the BART:
Twenty Ten is here, and it’s awesome. Tons of great work went in to creating the new default WordPress theme. I love the clean lines and easy readability of the new design.
