Regular blog here, 'microblog' there

Many of my traditional blog post live on this site, but a great majority of my social-style posts can be found on my much-busier microbloging site at updates.passthejoe.net. It's busier because my BlogPoster "microblogging" script generates short, Twitter-style posts from the Linux or Windows (or anywhere you can run Ruby with too many Gems) command line, uploads them to the web server and send them out on my Twitter and Mastodon feeds.

I used to post to this blog via scripts and Unix/Linux utilities (curl and Unison) that helped me mirror the files locally and on the server. Since this site recently moved hosts, none of that is set up. I'm just using SFTP and SSH to write posts and manage the site.

Disqus comments are not live just yet because I'm not sure about what I'm going to do for the domain on this site. I'll probably restore the old domain at first just to have some continuity, but for now I like using the "free" domain from this site's new host, NearlyFreeSpeech.net.

Social-style updates are moving to updates.stevenrosenberg.net

While I will still be starting most of my microblogging-style (i.e. social-media-style) posts on this site, I will be moving them to my updates site so this site will be a lot less cluttered and feature "full" entries only, for the most part.

Also, the social updates will not be on both sites, also for the most part.

Every couple of days or so, I will move the new social posts from this site to the updates site.

At some point, I will modify my current scripts to post directly to the updates site, and Frugal Technology, Simple Living and Guerrilla Large Appliance Repair will not be flooded with those short entries, which will have a permanent home at Steven Rosenberg's Microblog of Short Posts..
