Blog”

Hello! As I wrote in a post on the re­launch of my site, the main goal for the new ver­sion was to ease the process of adding new en­tries. How­ever, be­yond the tech­ni­cal side I com­pletely for­got about what ex­actly I wanted to write in that easy and sim­ple way.

Un­til to­day every­thing I pub­lished on my site could be di­vided to two cat­e­gories: is­sues and ex­per­i­ments. In “is­sues” I tried to pub­lish mostly ob­jec­tive things with all the proper ar­gu­ments and thoughts went through a lot of think­ing. Maybe those things could be called “ar­ti­cles”, but I don’t like this word. In “ex­per­i­ments”went all those things like pro­to­types for dif­fer­ent in­ter­est­ing things, made mostly just for fun, not as pro­duc­tion so­lu­tions, al­most with­out any de­scrip­tions what­so­ever. While now I see a bit of sense in de­scrib­ing things (like I did with my ex­per­i­ment on ro­tated text), I still don’t like the style of step-by-step tu­to­ri­als that de­scribe every let­ter here and there. So, those things I pub­lish as “ex­per­i­ments” could­n’t go into “is­sues”.

So, why did I made it easy to write posts for my site? It’s be­cause I wanted to write more of­ten. Not to pub­lish ar­ti­cles or ex­per­i­ments (not that of­ten for those), but to main­tain a blog. Not to post ob­jec­tive, com­pli­cated things, not for some crazy ex­per­i­ments with hard­core code, but to have a plat­form where I could share some­thing sim­ple, some­thing ca­sual maybe. Sim­ple ideas, thoughts, crit­ics for stuff that’s go­ing on in the to­day’s fron­tend world.

When it was hard to pub­lish a new post on a site I did­n’t thought of it as a blog, but then I came to it and re­made my site from scratch, but in a process I, again, for­got why I did all those things to Jekyll and my­self —for­got that I wanted it there for the short and sim­ple posts. So, af­ter the re­launch of a site there were not that much of new posts, but at the same time there were a lot of drafts and sketches for them. I for­got that you could post things not pol­ished to the shin­ing, but short, rough and un­fin­ished posts (and I’ll com­plete all those drafts and pub­lish them some­day, but I won’t haste my­self and would do it prop­erly, with­out a hard sched­ule).

And now I re­mem­bered about all those thing, and here it is —blog —a new cat­e­gory on my site. Well, “cat­e­gory” is a strong word here, it’s just a way to cheat on my­self and make me to write those not-so-long things. The fact is all those posts would still go to RSS, I still would share them on twit­ter, so noth­ing new there for you, ex­cept all those posts I’ll write ac­tually.

So, hooray, here it is, a blog. I’ll try to post here some stu­pid things of­ten :)
