A trip to the Wayback Machine reminded me that back in 2001, my blog looked like this:
Later, it looked like this:
It seems my early blog was a microblog! (I was tempted to go all hipster-than-thou about this, but I’ll refrain.)
In any case, there’s a lot of interesting energy around microblogs again today; I thought I’d revive my own.
My original plan was to import my entire Twitter history and merge that with my original microposts, but that led to sadness: Jekyll fares poorly when faced with tens of thousands of posts.
Instead, I simply revived my old microposts and placed them at davepeck.org/micro/. New microposts will also appear on my site’s front page. To see just the meaty blog posts (and I use the word “meaty” rather loosely), you can visit davepeck.org/blog/. I’ve also introduced new master, blog-only, and micro-only RSS feeds for your reading pleasure.
