I have the motivation of a large rock so most things are a win for me.

A few weeks ago, I created a small website ( that lists domain-hack type URLs ending with .sh. It scrapes WHOIS several times a day and the page is re-built automatically from the scraper output. All done with Github actions – which I'd never used before.

I was a little disheartened by the site's lack of traffic though and so I started reading about SEO. I'm familiar with many of the practises but SEO always seemed a bit skeevy to me. However, with few visitors, I finally accepted that if I wanted to make a successful website, I needed to learn SEO and marketing in general.

So, this week, I set up a blog – ostensibly as a sandbox for experimenting with SEO. I haven't learned so much about SEO yet – and I'm still to write a decent post – but I did enjoy honing my design skills and learning about CSS grid and flexbox. It also gave me the chance to become more familiar with Jekyll and I wrote some Liquid template plugins to handle things like fetching post thumbnails. It's not perfect but I found enjoyment working on it. (And it's been a while since I've found proper enjoyment doing computer stuff.)

The blog is

I was in the same boat up until like 6 months ago! I was working as a consultant on a project but for the most part was doing basically nothing. I started working on a few things and 2 months ago committed to building a social media platform, have been working on it ever since.

Really feels like I'm starting to enjoy playing with computers/websites again! Good luck to you on keeping the momentum going, its easy to do when you remember coding is actually really fun!

This looks insanely good. I fear I might have discovered a new time-sink.
