Project Standiford Blog

If you're reading this text, you're probably seeing this project in action right now. I believe in owning my content first, and vowed to never publish elsewhere first again, no matter how small the content was. The goal of this site has been to make a holistic view of my presence online, and centralize everything I do, from a tweet-sized post to full-blown essays, from business promotions to what song I've been enjoying lately. My site has become, and will always be, my true home on the web. This feed talks about the challenges I've had, the things I've needed to do, and the paradigms of running a site such as this.

WHEW what a process! I managed to get all of my tweets that I exported and deleted from Twitter two years ago, all imported into this site, including all of the photos and videos. I think I can finally say that I have centralized all of my content through alexstandiford.com now. Huge thanks to Shawn Hooper for building this importer, as it gave me a big leg up in the process. From here, it's just a matter of wrangling all of the tags, and generally organizing the content a little better, but the fact that it's in WordPress is a huge first step.

I'll share a blog post that goes into the stack, and details of the process soon.

I made several small improvements to my site today. Chief of which is finally getting the mysterious clock in the top-right corner functional on mobile. Also, dancing mermaids. πŸ§œβ€β™€οΈ

I still have a vision of putting a music player on it, and discovered I can totally do this with Last FM. That's coming. We must have the spirit of 2000s era MySpace, or it's not authentic.
