Way back when I used to do “Links of Interest” style posts. I’m happy to announce now that 1) There is a new design of this site coming within the next few weeks and 2) Linkage is coming back. I’m going to do it like it’s done currently on Digging Into WordPress, sort of Tumbr/Daring Fireball style. There will be no comments on this site for that style of post (comments should happen on the linked post). The title of the post will link right to the article, including in the RSS feed. There will be permalinks available for the posts though, for longevity’s sake.
There will not be a fast barrage of links coming in this way. I’ll only be linking to things that I find particularly interesting and that I actually have something to say about. These will be rolling out before the redesign is here, so there is data there for the new design to use when it is here.
Can’t wait ti see the new design :D
The links sound interesting
Already a new design?! This one’s great but I’m excited for the new one!
Looking forward to the new design, and the link system on digWP works well. Your very own Smashing Network? ;)
This site is great but I hope you do many tutorials on all the good things I’m sure you’ll design and code for your new site.
Wouldn’t it be kind of similar to Script & Style?
I am no longer involved with Script & Style. It’s no big deal, I just slowly moved away from it. The difference here will be that the stream will be much slower and there will be my personal commentary attached to each, not a generic summary.
Are the links going to be included in the RSS feed? I think it’d be kinda cool for the links to have their own separate RSS feed, but that’s just my opinion.
I’ll second that.
There will probably not be a separate feed. It’s not entirely impossible that I separate it, but for now, I think the links are a part of how I envision the main stream of this site.
Are the links going to be posts & external content that relate to your posts ?
Right. They may not always related directly to an existing post, but many will.
I love John Gruber’s (Daring Fireball) style, but on this site, it will be pure gold :)
I’m glad that the web browser has evolved to have multiple tabs – that way I can keep up with your bombardment of links…
i hope your new design will have better look
but i still wonder why you step away from Style subject…
Are you going to use the footer you showed of a few days ago in the new design? If the rest of the design is that cool I’m gonna love it!!
Maybe this explains my recent confusion.. I opened the RSS email that I signed up for thinking that when I clicked on the title I would be sent to this site but instead I was directed over to screwlewse.com. which is okay but it confused me.. pretty easy to do after a full day of coding.. my mind is much at this point of the day.
Is there a way to just have the links to your site in the rss feed?
Can’t wait to see the new design and features!
I guess the redesign is here, huh? thought I mistyped the address. Looks cool. I like the wider comments.
I’m sure you’re not done yet, but just in case, I thought I’d point out that the “Roll” and “Props” overlap your footer on the home page.
