Theme's Done

Took longer than expected and there’s still some little tiny niggles but everything’s back to about where it was, except better. Sharing buttons (not just Tumblr’s), social links, no more glitchy WebGL background (sadly I miss it but it was too much to maintain), a better build system, post excerpts, CDN, sub 1.0s page load times. Buttery smooth.

Expect hopefully a couple tutorials, some game development, and maybe some sewing/cosplay in the near future!

Movin' Day

So I moved from Tumblr to Ghost. Tumblr (the platform, not the community) is absolute garbage. I actually like the community: tons of fandoms, great art, weird memes, and so many old memories. The problem with Tumblr is that the theme editing is absolute garbage. There’s no real offline editing, they rewrite all your links, they inject tons of heavy scripts into the page load (upwards of 3+ seconds initial plus more async garbage), etc, etc.

I moved over just 6 posts as it’s not easy picking apart their markup to actually put into a new blog. I also ported my theme and I have to say, being able to use Grunt, watch, livereload, and a local copy of Ghost has to be the best workflow I could ever want. If the desire so strikes me I might end up going back and reposting stuff but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

It’s good to be back, more or less. Hope to post some cool stuff.
