Welcome to my homepage

I hope you enjoy looking through my stuff, you fucking weirdo.

A whole new blog thing

· Updated 

On a suggestion from my lovely and amazingly talented wife, and an idea I'd been kicking around for a while, I decided to build this monstrosity. We both thought it would be nice to have a place like Facebook or Twitter or whatever, but that's just for you. I realize I just described a blog, and I suppose I could've just installed Wordpress with bunch of plugins to do what we wanted, but where's the fun in that?

For fucks sake, really? Another blog?!

Yes, this is more blog software. Some very simple blog software. You can make posts, and you can attach files (think pictures and videos) to those posts. You write your posts in Markdown, and there's some basic privacy (public/private, allow comments or not) features, too. You can also import your data from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! The main difference between this and any other blog software, as far as I know anyway, is the feed.

The feed!

You can add your "friends" (websites) and, if they have an RSS feed, it'll be pulled in and displayed on your "feed" page, kinda like Facebook, but more like an RSS reader, because that's all it really is :-) Nothing really fancy, but a nice way to keep up to date with all your friends from one easy place, just like Facebook. There's no way to "like" things that show up on your feed, but you can share them very easily.

What else?

Hell, I don't know 🤷‍♂️ There's still a lot of features I want to add... Hashtags would be cool, email notifications could be helpful, a password reset UI, a setup process. I still haven't thought of a good name for it yet. And while currently it's locked up in a private repo, I'll be flipping that switch to public as soon as I'm comfortable I haven't committed anything too embarrassing.
