Blogging Mashup

Why do I feel that the thing I blog about the most is blogging ?

So, a few weeks ago I mentioned flavors.me and the fantastic visual web building that they offer. Indeed I know a few of my design minded colleagues have turned their hands to it and come up with some very nice results. I too loved the design and style options but, and this is usually the problem I had, it eventually didn’t do something the way I wanted.

You see, whilst it has great support for other sites (including posterous that i’m typing this on), I couldn’t get it to display both my posterous blogs on screen at once. Not a big deal, but I like finding answers to these things.

So, i’ve taken my flavors.me look & feel, built a nice html/css clone of my own, and then sat down with vb.net and made it work. Now, all the content from my site is parsed from the RSS feeds coming from posterous. I can update my site without ever having to touch the server.

Once again, I am happy with my site (for the moment).
