Haha! One of my many projects-that-never-saw-the-light-of-day was called Stocklistr. (I only remember because there’s this entry in my password manager, still.)
Short status updates that may end up elsewhere, too.
I, too, very much prefer blogs over newsletters! But, I mean, did they? Was it newsletters?
Newsletters killed blogs[.]
Alternatively, websites today […] can’t notify people of new work[.]
Sounds a wee bit like, “These days, everyone is using static site generators.” (Pardon my French, but no one who isn’t also a dev uses an SSG.)
Added “unread counts” to my RSS reader’s Microsub implementation. Fun fact: the reader itself—the new one—doesn’t display them. But Microsub clients will. Some (not very) creative use of Laravel’s
$casts array is all it took!
So, Invoice Ninja v4 doesn’t work with PHP 7.4 and up, and while that may not be too difficult to work around, there is a v5. Which likely won’t work with my main hosting plan. On top of that, I’m trying to get rid of my VPS and the jungle of Docker containers.

Tailwind is, like, the complete opposite of the CSS Zen Garden of yore. The latter was about fully redesigning a site without ever having to touch its HTML—only thing that changed was a single stylesheet. The former lets you redesign a site by altering all of its markup (while leaving the stylesheet untouched).
Created a more “app-like” version, where the main content would sit somewhat to the right, with the logo and “Settings” and “Log out” links in a narrow column all the way to the left, and the category/feed “accordion,” complete with inset box shadows and what not, in between. Then lost the columns. Found the scrollbar on the feeds column too overbearing. Tried a “suckerfish-like” dropdown menu, and got rid of it again. Then went for this much simpler version, with a Bootstrap-like hamburger menu on mobile. 🤷

I’m not here to hustle, gain followers, be a thought leader, build wealth, work myself to death, or rise to the top of the career ladder.

Turns out https://uglyduck.ca’s Atom feed had disappeared. Looks like the site got moved to WordPress. Good thing my feed reader now tells me! (Hint: this is why HTTP redirects exist.)
