I was about to write about another topic, but I rather take more time for this topic. For now I want to give you a small teaser about things I currently work on.
RSS/ Atom feed
This theme seems to support it but I am not so happy with the format and I think I have to work on this one. In my opinion an RSS/ Atom feed is a must-have feature for every blog. I am going to write about this in a separate blog post.
Logo for CanCookRice.com
I feel that every blog or project needs to have a logo. I've got some ideas, but I don't want to rush it. Feel free to reach out, if you have some logo ideas for me. I would appreciate it.
Organization of my content
I don't like to store my content only in blog posts, so I am working on a docs section in which I keep various topics up to date. I haven't decided yet if I host a separate homepage for the docs or if I find another way to present my docs.
For many reasons I am going to mirror the docs with a git repo. With a git repo mirror multiple people can conveniently work together, helps me to improve my workflow, and provides some kind of changelog.
The blog is fairly new and I have to become familiar with the routines, but I already see potential to automate a lot of things. Backups, bringing the blog post online, sharing the post on social media, and so on. Time will show how much time I can save by improving my workflow.
Blog post thumbnails
The plan is to create a unique thumbnail for every post. It is an additional challenge, but I have to improve my media design game again, so it is a great chance to warm up again.
Work with categories and tags
I have to figure out if my current them provides decent support for categories and tags. I actually might have to change the theme or code it myself, but I am not sure yet. I am going to use categories for various formats or series like tutorials or experiments and tags for the topic I write about.
I have a lot of work to do, but happy that my blog is already online. As I have mentioned in a blog post before that my inner perfectionist is screaming, I think that this was the correct decision to create content before 'everything is perfect'.
