Personal Blogs I Enjoy

Today I would like to introduce you to a few blogs. What is a blog you ask? Merriam-Webster defines a blog as a website that contains online personal reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks, videos, and photographs provided by the writer. Well I'm excited already!

There are a lot of good personal blogs out there. They are not always easy to find, but services such as searchmysite.net help. To keep up with new posts I simply paste the blog's RSS or Atom feed into a feed reader such as Liferea. atthis.link blog RSS feed for atthis.link

A personal blog by Marc who is a Developer with an interest in Security, Web Technologies, and Human-Computer Interaction. They have written articles about RSS, web design, and books among other topics.

The design of the site is fairly minimalist and very well done. Every post is well written and interesting which provides a nice contract to my blog. I also like the idea of a snippets page for shorter thoughts. Keep up the good work Marc!

Giving Your Best Will Always Feel Super Difficult

Technical Writing on the Web

Progress and Pianos

Critical Programming

The truth is I wish I was as good at writing and programming as Ash Furrow. One day I'll get there!

rusingh.com blog RSS feeds page for rusingh.com

Ru is a web developer with an interest in open standards, good security practices, design, DevOps, and UX.. All of those things are cool! Her blog is well designed and quite pleasant to use. I also love the ease of turning dark mode on and off. The uses page seems like a good idea as well.

As far are articles go, I can recommend this one on finding out how many people subscribe to your blog's RSS feed. She also did a good one on the weaknesses of static site generators. Those are only two examples so make sure to check out her site and read the rest!

rubenerd.com archive page RSS feed for rubenerd.com

This blog was one of my main inspirations to start writing. I can confirm that the personal website of Ruben Schade is in fact mostly harmless as he says in the about page. I'm not going to select specific posts to highlight as the author is so prolific, but I would highly recommend subscribing to the rubenerd.com RSS feed.

The site itself is super cool and has its own mascot! How sweet is that? paritybit.ca blog RSS feed for paritybit.ca

We have ourselves another sick personal website here! This site is done by Jake who is a student of computer science, sysadmin, and staunch supporter of online freedom, privacy rights, and free and open access to information and knowledge. Good stuff Jake! Articles by Jake I have really liked include The Joys of Old Tech, Be A Good Netizen, and Why IRC is Still Good in $CURRENT_YEAR.

The site itself is a joy to use. Both uses and now pages can be found on it. Check Jake's site out!

daverupert.com blog RSS feed for daverupert.com

I am very impressed with Dave's website. It is full of cool stuff and also things. Many fantastic articles such as The web is something different can be found inside. So can good blogging advice. Gaze upon his unique about page! Very well done.

As much as I love praising different blogs from around the web it is time to end this post and say goodbye for now! Thanks for reading and please enjoy the blogs I linked!
