The Blog is Dead!

The Blog is Dead! › Yongfook – Web Producer.

I’ve just set up Yonkfook’s Sweetcron here at Digital Cortex – and am closely considering my next steps.

Do I continue blogging here? Do I move to a wholly auto-generated stream?

The advantages of WordPress are a highly extensible and powerful platform for the delivery of text and rich media.
The advantages of Sweetcron are (apparently) a highly extensible and powerful platform for the delivery of shortform text and images.
The answer for now, is to do both, and somehow, somehow, get the two to link up.

The numerous hosted content aggregators and WordPress lifestreaming plugins I’ve tried just haven’t performed as I’d hoped, but I see so much promise to take Digital Cortex up a level if I can only boost my own technical skills.

Will post a review of the lifestreaming technologies I’ve tried to date, but in the meantime I’ll continue trying to make this look like the rest of my site.

Future Site Design

CubeThis is the cube that’ll eventually inform the whole look and feel of this site.

It’s simplicity evokes solidity and clarity. Also, it looks cool. Which is the main thing.

Will try out a load of different colours, and see what sticks.

I’m now working on creating a Child theme for Thematic, which is supposed to make WordPress customisation quite easy. We’ll see about that!

Why I wanted to blog…

This is my third blog.

The previous two are over at http://thebrainfarm.blogspot.com and at http://thememestream.blogspot.com.

I have wanted a third blog for a long while now, since there have been ideas and images that I have felt I’d really like to share. The older blogs are rather too ‘young’ to continue in the same thread, as my mind has developed since they began. Feel free to check them out to get a better idea of where I am coming from.

So, WordPress eh?

Looking forward to a fresh start and a fresh set of capabilities. I’ll be trying to mobile blog, tweet, and feed my Last.fm music through to whoever lands here. Lets see how Web 2.0 I can make things whilst keeping the blog on the readable side of vibrant.
