Spring cleaning a website

I’ve spent some time studying Zepfanman.com reports from Google Analytics, a tool I’ve been using for the past year. Without redesigning the site, I’ve taken cues from the reports to update some old posts and make the site load a little faster. You might call it spring cleaning. With less than 900 views a month, I […]

Full featured commenting with Disqus

More site upgrades for Zepfanman.com (on top of the ones I did during the holidays). I’m trying to maintain the K.I.S.S. mentality, but the Disqus commenting system looked way too handy to pass up.

New blog for all things J. J.

I’ve just installed WordPress 2.7.1 on my website. This is the obligatory first post. The what, when, and why will come later. Basically, though, I’m reviving my blogging blood. It’s always bugged me to have my online identity spread all over the web (Facebook, MySpace, Blogger, etc.), so I’m back to a proprietary blogging platform. […]
