Another year is wrapping up (how?!), so time for my #indieweb #newwwyear resolutions for my website. By 2019-01-01 I would like to: Update my archive pages to cover more post types, not just articles Add back the next/previous article navigation. I lost those as part of updates to the footer As a stretch goal, I would like to work on my channels more. I would like to set up one to feed into my micro.blog that excludes replies to non-micro.blog posts. I would like to start treating micro.blog as my primary, external social network instead of Twitter. Previously: 2017, 2016, 2015

While working on my archives page, I decided to upgrade it to CSS Grid. I followed this tutorial and put together this rough mockup. I’m liking it so far.

This is still for articles only. I’m thinking about if/how to link my notes. I could use a series of notepad icons, but that got me wondering what the actual use-case is. With articles the title is shown so that might catch someone’s interest while scrolling the page. Who is going to be interested in clicking one of hundreds of notepad icons on the page, though, without any additional context?


@RELEVANTpodcast Loved hearing @EdwardorEddie on the show again, though was disappointed he didn’t get the outro audio clip.

Also am I missing it or did you not tweet about #658? I smell a @JesseCarey cover-up!

This make sense, and I agree I don't want to revise a post either, though I do wonder if a read post with a status reading should be a reply-to a read post with status to-read and then a read post with the status of finished sent as a reply-to to the read post with a status reading

I’ve experimented with a reply-chain like that a couple times, e.g. https://gregorlove.com/2017/12/finished-reading-a-wrinkle-in/

Though now @gRegorLove I am really confused on the difference between a read post and an h-review of a book. Is a read, either want-to, reading, done just an action with no summary? Does a red post become a review once you make a recommendation?

I think a read post primarily indicates an action related to reading it. “I want to read this,” “I am currently reading this,” or “I finished reading this.” I think any of those could include an optional comment. The Goodreads status update UI is a good example of this: you can update your reading progress and include a comment each time. Once you’ve marked a book as finished, you have a separate UI to enter a review and a rating, independent of your previous status updates and comments.

I think the general indieweb workflow for this would be several posts:

  1. A read post with status to-read
  2. read post(s) with status reading (one or more)
  3. A read post with status finished
  4. An h-review post

Personally I don't think updating existing posts is a great idea in this workflow, but I'm open to ideas. These are my suggestions based on experience with Goodreads.


During tonight’s Homebrew Website Club Online I finished off some improvements to my CSS. I updated responses on my articles and notes to use CSS Grid.

This isn’t a visually stunning update — in fact they look almost exactly the same — but I was able to simplify the HTML quite a bit. Previously, I was using some conditionals in the templates to show different HTML+CSS class names in order vertically center “one-line” responses like “John Doe mentioned this.” Using CSS Grid with Flexbox as a fallback made the HTML and CSS more straightforward. I am looking forward to doing more with CSS Grid. I hope to get to the point I can remove the Skeleton CSS framework.

I also split out sections for RSPVs and Other Responses on my event posts.

what was the first thing you ever did on the web? i think i was ~7 and i spent a few hours entering every URL i could think of into the browser to see what was there

I remember looking up the first Mission: Impossible movie site and loving the MIDI theme it played. I also quickly discovered NetCentral web chat and went there regularly.

On today's show, we talk with @crowdermusic about his brand new album "I Know a Ghost". The crew also discusses Lauren Daigle’s response to critics, talk about the latest "Saturday Night Live" controversy, host a very special feedback guest and a lot more! https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-relevant-podcast/id78780644?mt=2

The title of D'Souza’s film is also a reference to the white supremacist film, The Birth of a Nation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Birth_of_a_Nation

Appreciate you touching on this scoundrel. I think he’s dangerous. His ahistorical books and films serve as apologia for rising fascism.
