I’ve decided to build a blog again. I’ve done this a few times in the past, but this time I actually wanted to do it right. Rather than just the rumblings I used to post, I want this one to be about graphic design, (mostly) with some rambling scattered throughout.
I also felt like the designkai.com domain needed to be put to better use. I’ve decided to embrace my Designkai pseudonym since I use it so regularly everywhere. I felt that the domain (that I’ve owned since ’05) should actually resolve something with a bit of personal information. Or in this case, a lot.
It is of course always being spruced up a bit, so there might be gradual changes. But I’m pretty satisfied with it for the moment. There might also be pages in the future, but I have no need at the moment.
I’m now using Kirby CMS, which I recently found and immediately fell in love with (I’ll write a post about that soon). If you don’t know it, look it up. But because of Kirby I can ‘art direct’ my blog posts, meaning that my posts may not even all look the same. I have no plan to have a different design per post, but it sure is nice to have the option.
Oh, and I don’t have comments for the moment. For now we can all just discuss it on Twitter - I’ve even put a “discuss on Twitter” button beside the date stamp on every post.
I’ve added Disqus! But I still haven’t written about the things I said I would… in due time.
