On Campus

The December ominbus post

As I approach the middle of December, I’m changing pace.

Many people don’t realize this, but I didn’t starting blogging in 2004 to actually blog. Blogging with a vehicle to play around with web design, applications and my own web server. The “back-end” side of blogging has always been my primary hobby and I haven’t had time to indulge in this hobby for a few months.

As many of you would are aware, Maclean’s OnCampus is powered using WordPress. JoeyColeman.ca has been proudly using MovableType since 2004. Over the Christmas break, JoeyColeman.ca will be switched to WordPress and I going to spend a great deal of time playing around with WordPress so I can offer suggestions to the OnCampus web producers on how to make this site better.

I’ve also talked for over a year now about creating a forum community. I will be experimenting with this on my personal server as well.

All this means less “reporting” content during the rest of the month. (I will cover any developments in the York strike situation, but I’m expecting this strike will still be there in January to greet us in the New Year.)

You’ll still want to check the blog, there will be plenty of posts pointing you to interesting articles and I’m going to finish off some posts that were never completed during the pass few months.

Any of the regulars interesting in providing feedback on my web work over the break, feel free to email me for the URL and an access code.
