Blog update: comments enabled!

20 January 2021 - Reading time: ~1 minute

A quick note to say that comments have been enabled for my blog.

Bludit, the blogging CMS I use for my website, doesn't natively support commenting.  But I discovered a comment plug-in written by the community (yay, don't have to use a third-party system like Disqus), so I've installed it now.

You have to click through into individual blog posts to see the comments form.  Comments are moderated but I will check and approve regularly. Give it a try!

(Thanks to Emera for nudging me to get it done. ^_^)

Site update.

Moved a few things around the domain. My commonplace book, Canto, is now at its own site, so some posts have disappeared from this blog. Canto really needs to be its own thing, it's more of a curated gallery than a workaday blog like this one. One day I'll take my enormous archive at Tumblr and migrate it over here so I have all the content on my domain, but that's a (very big) task for another day.

This blog, velivolans, will continue to have art updates, game and book reviews, and other bloggy stuff.

I'm very pleased that I discovered Bludit from another blogger/artist.  It's a simple, lightweight and fast CMS oriented towards static site generation (SSG) and small websites. I've always liked the idea of SSGs but messing around in code is quite beyond my ability or interest. Now that Bludit is powering all the backend and I can bounce WordPress into the dustbin, I'm actually motivated to produce content for my domain.

Well, here we go again.

I am starting over with a new blog, and this time I might have better success with consolidating the rat's nest of my website and online presence. But I have Plans this time, Big Plans.  Here's to something new for 2021.
