get stream as: markdown or atom

I also would like to revamp my site, because when you want to write more isn't the first appropriate thing to do is do a Site Sprint instead? :)


My blog has morphed over time from my own home built Django project as a way to learn to a biblion based blog to my own home built thing again based on the redactorjs editor.


My plan for this sprint are:

  • go back to biblion based blog based on pinax-project-blog
  • update style
  • interleave the firehouse of my thoughts on ThoughtStreams with my posts somehow
  • get away from the traditional prominence of date based slugs in favor of just article slug
  • curate all 497 posts so that all the markup is clean and the same (some of my older stuff is pretty dirty and my recent posts are all in HTML instead of markdown)

The goal is to have all this done before January 1, 2015 so that I can start writing on a consistent schedule for the new year.
