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 Day 1 post.
jvt.me is run by Jamie Tanna, a technology lead for the Data Standards Authority. Jamie's website is one of the earliest "IndieWeb" websites I remember encountering. I often find his blog posts when I am searching for a particular IndieWeb topic. For instance, when I was looking for ways to authenticate with IndieAuth, I found Jamie's tutorial on how to implement passwordless authentication with Okta's Factors identity services product.
jvt.me posts various different kids of content, from bookmarks to RSVPs to long-form articles. I regularly click on bookmarks from Jamie's feed and end up in a rabbit hole. I also follow Jamie's articles, particularly those that relate to the IndieWeb. Jamie's articles span a wide range of topics, however. I learn quite a bit about website architecture and random technology topics that I would otherwise not think about going deep on. If you are interested in the web, you're bound to find something that interests you on Jamie's homepage before you even explore further.
I would recommend the following articles as a starting point if you want to explore jvt.me a bit more:
- Should That (Secret) Thing Be In Your Querystring?
- Creating a Personal IndieAuth Server
- Setting up Passwordless Authentication using the Okta Factors API
- Make Your RSS Feed Discoverable
P.S. Please do make your RSS feed discoverable per Jamie's tutorial if you run a blog and publish a feed. One small change will enable most RSS readers to easily find a feed on your website without you having to paste a direct RSS or feed link into your feed reader.
Jamie's site features a fast search function. I love how easy it is to find content that I'm looking for on the site. There's no need to go anywhere else: all of Jamie's articles are discoverable through a search system he runs.
