I used to have multiple points of presence on the internet:
- my blog at www.alexeyshmalko.com, where I posted arbitrary thoughts
- another blog at egoless.tech, where I wrote about software development
- a collection of my Zettelkasten notes at braindump.rasen.dev
It’s taxing to maintain a zoo of websites using different technologies, and it is even harder to build an audience for each separately (especially given they are just side projects).
Today I’m merging all of them into one and reformatting it substantially.
It has both finished posts, knowledge and book notes. It’s usually obvious which is which from the content, but you can also tell them apart from an icon near the title. 🖋 is for posts, 📝 for regular notes, and 📖 for bibliographic notes.
I’ve managed to merge all paths, so all existing links redirect to the same posts on this website. I’ll shut down other websites in a year or two.
I’ve written many awful and some decent posts—a date-sorted list of all pages doesn’t do justice and is a bad way to get engaged with my thoughts.
Disqus ended up being a bad medium for meaningful discussion, but ate loading time and showed ads. Thus, I’m dropping comments entirely from the website. That said, I do care about feedback and you can still reach me by email.
