HOME - INDEX - Rethinking RSB ... - It lives! It li...

This is the first real actual post from my new blogging system. I call it RSB because I'm trying to keep it a Real Simple Blog.

There are things to come - for one thing, no RSS feed (yes, it is coming, Dave!) and I want the ability to upload one/a couple images (which would then also get posted to Twitter), among others. But it's not wordpress/blogger/medium/tumbler, it won't become those, and I don't want it to become those. I want an easy way to post longform stuff in a place I control

UPDATES: RSS feed is now enabled. Also, much better integration with twitter, displaying summaries.

As you probably got here from Twitter (and I really hope you followed the link) - not only does it autotweet all entries, but I'm using Twitter as my comments/discussion system. It also is used to log into the admin area - at present, it's locked into my screenname, but one thing I am looking at adding is multi-user support.

And yeah, it needs to be prettier. That will run into my limits as a graphic artist, but again, I don't want to be Medium.

BTW, in addition to twitter, thanks to the CKEditor people, I use it for the body entry/editing.
