Katie's website and other stuff

I just want to give a shout out to my fiance Katie Phillips for building a website in iWeb!

I had told her before that I would build her a website but she didn’t think she needed one but this year she is taking a class about using technology in the classroom and one of her assignment was to make a site. I am proud of her because to be honest she isn’t that tech savvy.

Now on to some news about what I will be working on next.

I plan on making my blogging application great and here is a list of some of the things I want to add to it.

  • A custom admin because I am using the django admin at the moment and even though its awesome if I want to distribute this app and have others use it their should be a custom admin.
  • An ability to leave comments on a post. I haven’t decided whether to make them anonymous or have users sign up for a simple account yet.
  • The ability to upload pictures to make it look more appealing.
  • I currently make my posts by writing html that goes into my page from the admin but I want to start using markdown. I am really excited for this part because I found an awesome online editor called Dillinger.

Lastly I know there are tons of blogging apps out there in many languages but I am building this app because I want it to be the simplest (for users) as well as learn many things along the way.

Thanks for reading!
