  • Why I IndieWeb

    Posted on: | IndieWeb

    I wrote a post a few days ago on how I IndieWeb. I feel like I should go further and talk for a moment about why I am an active participant on the IndieWeb. This topic came to mind in response to an email I received earlier today. This email made me think about my motivations behind contributing to the IndieWeb. What is it that excites me about contributing to the wiki? Why do I spend so much time building IndieWeb principles into my website.

  • Adding Webmentions to Jekyll

    Posted on: | IndieWeb

    A few days ago, I remarked that I have not added webmentions to this blog because they would add too much overhead to the build time. When I wrote this post, I was thinking about only one way to add webmentions to my Jekyll site. I was thinking about a Jekyll plugin that retrieves all of my webmentions, sorts them, and then adds them to all of my posts. I thought it could maybe function with a front matter integration. I did not do too much research.

  • Being Me

    Posted on: | Life

    I have just had my first cup of the coffee for the day. Oh! what a moment it was. An interesting post just popped up in my RSS feed that touches on a topic that I’ve wanted to discuss for a while, but that I have resisted mentioning. I want to talk about being myself on this blog. You can read the original post by Rubenerd that inspired me on his blog.

  • A Morning Away

    Posted on: | Life

    This Sunday I decided to take a different approach to my morning. I didn’t turn on my computer as soon as I had my shower. I did not check my notifications (interestingly, I had none of note). I embraced what I felt like I wanted to do. I am in a bit of a creative rut with my programming. I like to write code but I do not like to write code that has no purpose. I feel like I am wasting time when I am working on a software project that has no goal.

  • Brewing Coffee With the Aeropress

    Posted on: | Coffee

    The Aeropress is the device that first got me into the world of specialty coffee. Before I knew that there were different grind sizes and origins (and to think that was only a few months ago) I wanted a device that was as simple as possible. I was interested in coffee after having an experience drinking, of all coffees, a Greggs Cappuccino. It was my first coffee this year and it felt special. I was drinking coffee again and it tasted delicious.

  • Writing a Colophon

    Posted on: | IndieWeb

    I am presently sitting with nothing else to do. I enjoy writing so here I am again, back for another (short) blog post.

  • Resisting Complexity on My Site

    Posted on: | IndieWeb

    I am tempted by all of the IndieWeb websites to add more features to this site. Yesterday evening, I had somewhat of a realization: the parts of my website that stand the test of time are those that are simple and do not require any overhead.

  • How I IndieWeb

    Posted on: | IndieWeb

    I’ve been following the IndieWeb actively for close to two months. The time has flown. I have felt that way about every day this year. My relationship with the IndieWeb really puts time into perspective for me. I digress. In this time, I have tried out a lot of different IndieWeb setups. People have commented on the speed at which I build new features on my site. I’ve had a lot of fun building new extensions and trying out new ideas.

  • Giving Up on Quantified Self

    Posted on: | Quantified Self

    There was a discussion going on in the IndieWeb Slack about quantified self. An interesting post called “the unquantified self” was mentioned. I skimmed over it and I just thought that I haven’t written an update on my quantified self projects in a while. I’m not feeling the best after the latest round of restrictions were announced in the UK. I hope this post will pull me out of my feelings a little bit and anchor me back to what I love doing with my time.
