I am writing a blog post every day from December 1st to December 24th, 2021, about a blogger whose writing or site I follow. My aim for this series is to help you discover new blogs and to help get the word out about content creators whose blogs I appreciate. You can read more about this series in the inaugural post where I chat more about this series. Let's begin!
Adactio is a blog run by Jeremy Keith, the founder of Clearleft. On the Adactio blog, you will find four different types of content: a journal with shorter articles, a list of links to resources Jeremy has liked, articles Jeremy has written, and shorter form notes. All of these categories have their own feed so you can pick and choose which one(s) you enjoy the most and subscribe. I have subscribed to three out of the four categories in my RSS feed.
Jeremy blogs mostly about the web, covering topics such as web tracking, using the right tools for the job, and his work writing for the web.dev blog. I have enjoyed posts on all of these topics. Jeremy's extensive experience shines through in every article, presenting informed and well-articulated arguments for many areas that I find interesting.
I have found some terrific web resources on adactio.com over the last week. Posting links on quite a regular cadence, you'll almost certainly find a link to a web resource or article that you will find interesting, as long as you are interested in the web. If you are in the mood for a long-form piece of content, look no further than Jeremy's articles section. You'll find plenty of written talks, presentations, and long-form content to perus.e
Adactio.com also comes with a terrific set of themes. I in awe of the themes available, which cover a wide range of historical web aesthetics and made me feel confident in offering a "retro" version of my site.
If you're looking for a place to start on Adactio.com, I would recommend:
Today I also learned that Jeremy has been blogging for 20 years, making his blog one of the longest-running that I have seen to date. Amazing!
I love writing this series. For the last three days, one of the first things on my mind after waking up is "what blog am I going to feature today?" I have seen so many interesting websites in the last few years. If you ever feel like the web is all the same, I'd recommend checking out the IndieWeb or clicking through the websites I feature in this series. You'll realise there is still a great deal of creative content on the web written by independent bloggers: you just have to know where to start looking. And this series will give you a good place to begin if you haven't already!
I shall see you in tomorrow's edition of this series. Until then, happy reading and exploring!
