  • Facebook-fed blog someday?

    Chris’ reference to a means of linking his site to Facebook touches on something I thinking about this morning. Even though you can export your Facebook data into what seems like a nicely presented, local site of sorts, I’d like to be able to basically parse my Facebook timeline, and somehow migrate it to a […]

  • Why we should return to personal websites (Reason 1220)

    I enjoyed “We Should Replace Facebook With Personal Websites“. It speaks to what I’m partially aiming for with this blog.

I have a couple IndieWeb plugins installed on this blog which bring actions like Twitter likes, retweets and (theoretically) Facebook likes and comments back here. I […]

  • Should professional websites have blogs?

    My primary business is my digital risk consulting business and its website has a blog along with static pages about me, my services as related themes. I have maintained a blog on my professional sites for about 9 years, it just seemed like the right way to set up a professional site. Lately, though, I’ve […]

  • Blog migration, destruction and recovery in 873 easy steps

    This is a story of momentary triumph, devastation and recovery. It was a collaborative effort but the real hero is Nathan Jeffery who you can read more about at the end of this post (so please keep reading). I had two sites a few days ago which I decided to merge into one. The one […]
