By |August 8th, 2018|Wordpress|

In 2012, I built a simple one-page website for an event that was being held on campus. I was just getting my WordPress designer sea legs under me, and was pretty enthralled with the idea of the “one-pager.” The title for the event was “The Now and the Next” and it was about engaging early […]

Humanizing The Search Index – Becoming An Algorithm

By |October 26th, 2017|cte, EdTech, Wordpress|

Stream of water passing over rocks.
This week I created edufeeds.keeganslw.com, which uses a simple web app as a educational blog aggregator. It’s built in WordPress with plugins, and it’s a tool I’m planning to use in order to save time, energy, and stay updated with blogs I follow. In fact, I’m hoping to beat out Google in terms of tailored […]

Croom: The Font

By |October 9th, 2017|Wordpress|

Yes, that’s right. I’ve now developed a typeface based on my handwriting. If you are looking for a very hastily written, chicken scratch type of font, may I suggest this option.

Shelves containing binders of files.
A couple weeks ago, I completed a couple web maintenance projects I’ve been meaning to tackle.

A Web Diet: Converting WordPress Sites Over to Static Sites

By |August 7th, 2017|Domain of Ones Own, JMC3433, Wordpress|

Over the years, my main course web project, PR Pubs, has became one sprawling beast. For the most part, people know prpubs.us as the homepage for the course, but I haven’t actively used that space for a few semesters. Thus, in May I made it one of my summer goals to rework prpubs.us in such... Continue reading

A Server Of One’s Own

By |August 4th, 2017|cte, Wordpress|

Servers stacked together with cables running between each.
One conversation Jim Groom and I had last month in Australia was about development in the Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) space and how to best facilitate growth. This post is not the answer, but our discussion continues to spur thoughts that I want to document. In boils down to this: I want a Server […]
