Disabled Comments

After switching back to WordPress from a static blog that did not have any comments, I left comments on out of curiosity to see what would happen. Sure enough, within a few days, I already had over 20 spam comments to moderate. I just switched comments back off, and don’t plan on turning them on anytime soon. They are too much of a hassle a police. There are lots of ways to contact me if you need help or clarification on any of my posts.

Switching from Middleman Back to WordPress

After a little over 2 years on Middleman, I decided to move my blog back to WordPress. Middleman – and static blogs in general – are a good idea in general (especially for security and performance), but I found it more difficult to write and contribute to my own blog on a regular, ongoing basis.

New Blog, Design – Finally Getting Started

After a long time sitting on the sidelines of the whole blogging/social media trend, I finally decided to jump in headfirst with a new Twitter account and this blog. I’ve been watching the new trends carefully and building websites and writing code for them, but up until now, hadn’t actually jumped on the bandwagon to start blogging myself. A big thanks goes out to my local RefreshOKC group and to Dustin Brewer, a co-worker with a CSS/Design blog for pushing me over the edge to actually hop on the blogging train.

The primary focus of this blog will be on my daily adventures in advanced PHP coding, Javascript, and general web development. The goal will be to supply code, resources, and helpful articles to those who are also coding or learning object-oriented PHP, Javascript, HTML, CSS, or other web technologies. And of course, there may be occasional deviance from the main focus, though my posts will still be web-related and relevant to anyone in the Internet industry. My adventures in blogging begin… Now.
