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!
Next up is Ash Furrow! He is
a world-class software developer living in Atlantic Canada. Hey, that's where I live! His blog has many fantastic articles so here are a few of them to check out!
The truth is I wish I was as good at writing and programming as Ash Furrow. One day I'll get there!
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!
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.
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
I am very impressed with Dave's website. It is full of cool stuff and also things. Many fantastic articles such as 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!
