I want to start by clearly stating that I am not “rage quitting” my social media. I am reducing my footprint and reliance on them. To that end …
I removed the share buttons for social media from my site. I do not like how they call home even if you chose not to share my post. It’s rude. And the buttons row on my posts is ugly. I might reverse my decision at any point.
I removed the automatic post sharing on social media. Blasting my posts across the Social Media with no tailoring is inconsiderate at best. While all my written gems are exactly that, it is not my place – after this post – to demand your attention on every utterance. I might reverse my decision at any point.
“How will I follow your crazy shenanigans“, you ask?
The best way to track my site is to subscribe to the full text RSS feed．If you’re not interested in every one of my whims, each category has its own RSS feed as well. If you’re my parents and siblings, your email updates will not change.
If you, Dear Reader, would like an email newsletter of some kind, please leave a comment on this post to let me know.
Another note for the more technically interested in website hosting, I am playing with removing CloudFlare from my site. I experienced odd behaviors I thought my CDN caused. Turns out that my site was no longer redirecting to the HTTPS page, maybe due to the service.
In other news, all requests are once again going to the HTTPS version of my site. I don’t know when, why, or how my old .htaccess file changed, but it is again serving up the correct version of my site.
If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please leave a comment on this post.
