I’ve been blogging on and off since the day I turned 22 (way back in 2001). When I started doing server-side programming in PHP in 2002, I made my own blog, but after a few months, the GDC (which was housing the website) lost everything on their servers, and i didn’t have any backups. After that, I wanted to try something that integrated into LiveJournal so I wouldn’t have to worry about a database crash. I tried writing a Flash wrapper around LiveJournal, but that sucked hard. So when I started carpeliam.com, I had a spot for a blog to go, but it didn’t actually exist.
Until now. I came up with the cool idea of housing the blogs on my own personal database on carpeliam.com, but simultaneously publishing it to LiveJournal through the LiveJournal API. I plan to add more features soon, like when I finish writing a song, it’ll get a blog entry automagically. And of course there is an RSS for the whole thing, which might end up going up on facebook too. We’ll just have to see what happens.comments powered by Disqus
