Changes Are Coming

Changes are coming to RegularGeek! These are not really big changes, but they are something. Because some of the changes affect the content on this blog, I wanted to give you notice of what is coming.

First, I hope to finally update the blog with a new logo. I have had the logo for a while, but I need to tweak the design a bit before I update everything. There will probably be category and archive changes soon as well. The categories are not detailed enough, and will move closer to post tags. So, if you have tried to follow only the programming posts or just the social media posts, you may need to take a look at the new categories to see what to follow. The archives have been an annoyance of mine for quite some time. A simple monthly list works fine when you are under 18 months, but after that the list gets too lengthy. So, I will be looking into new ways to navigate the archives. Any recommendations on these items or the navigation are welcome.

Second, there will be a new type of daily post. I have talked about this in the past, but I will be posting a daily links post. These posts will be in a new category called Geek Reading, and will contain my daily Google Reader shares. I have debated doing this for quite some time, but not enough people use Google Reader to get those shares. So, a daily link post will get my “curated and filtered” choices published to all of the blog readers. For those of you not familiar with my sharing, there are about 35 posts per day taken from tech news, application development and a little bit of business. These posts will be published around noon Eastern time.

Lastly, I will be posting more about HTML5. HTML5 is not just HTML, as it also contains CSS3 and a whole bunch of new APIs. Of course, when you are dealing with APIs that means you are writing JavaScript. With JavaScript, I will probably focus on core JavaScript and some JQuery as that is what I normally use, though I could talk about other interesting libraries at times. More importantly, I wanted to ensure that you get content that talks about all aspects of web application development, not just server-side programming. I am more of a generalist when it comes to application development, so it makes sense for the content to deal with more aspects of web development.

So, that is what is changing here. Hopefully, the majority of readers will like the changes. As always, let me know what you think in the comments.

  1. Readers who get your links through Friendfeed or other services will not welcome the links bundle posts. To alleviate that problem, you could provide an extra feed with just the regular articles – I’m not sure how to do that. Also, I use per-category feeds which I have found useful for readers who want to focus on specific subjects.
