A New Theme

2017.02.25 Sitely Matters 12 Comments

Wow, so my last entry was over 4 months ago, and unfortunately I’ve let things slide again. My goal for 2017 is to be more consistent about blogging, so with that in mind, I’ve been working on this new theme in the past week or so, and now it’s finally ready. It’s safe to say I’m much happier with this theme than my last, which was nice, but the overall old theme was a bit disjointed. I’ve also renamed some of my categories, so they’re less fanciful and more to the point.

I’ve also removed the link to Tutorials from the main navigation, since I don’t have that many up. I’m going to spend some time working on getting some online before I bring that page back. I also want to get in a habit of blogging about things I’ve been working on, like my coding projects on GitHub.

Anyway, here’s to hoping for better discipline and more productivity.

Downtime

Oops, I let life kind of kick this blog on the back burner again.

The short life update is, I did finally get a job, and most of my time has been consumed by that. The whole early morning and doing the 8-5 thing is still something I need to get used to, ’cause when I get home I unfortunately don’t want to do much.

As for tutorials, believe it or not, I wrote up a script for a tutorial almost a month ago, but I’ve been dragging my feet on writing the actual post.

What prompted me to finally log in and make this post is the official shutdown of Kippt, which was a serviced I loved using to keep track of all my resources and interesting tutorials and such. Since that’s no longer a thing, I think it’s time I make a schedule for myself and get working on the Delicious clone I’ve been planning for some time, since I can’t find a better alternative besides pinboard.

Anyway, I’ll get working on finishing that tutorial soon.

Yay custom theme

Two months after my initial post about restarting this blog, I’ve finally made progress on that promise.

Now we’re finally sporting a completely custom and responsive theme. I’m getting better at using WordPress¬†API and this has definitely been a good learning experience. Hopefully with all the theme quirks worked out, I’ll start getting this blog rolling.

I’d really like to do regular posts on coding tutorials and teaching basic programming. I’ve been a tutor at our Computer Science department for a while now, and I think I’ve gotten the hang of teaching.

Hello world!

If you’re wondering what happened to my old blog, I’ve basically decided to start from a completely clean slate. The new version will be launching very soon, with some (hopefully) better content. Cheers.
