I’ve been promising this for a while but with regular life and headaches taking over my free time… I have been less than productive. But fear not! I DO have an update. I think I basically have the first version of the “Blogenning” software I’ve been talking so much about right now.
For the time being it will be hosted at http://blogenning.rachelober.com/. Not to be self-serving, but it is easiest for me to update it. I spoke with Brandon and we both thought that if it worked well enough we could each chip in a buck and buy ourselves a proper domain to house the insanity.
- User login and administration
- Add “rounds”, “entries” for rounds, and “users” for entries
- Main page lists the rounds starting from most recent to oldest entries
On the to do list:
- Registering and password retrieval
- “Special” statuses for “trend setters” and “bastards” (these are inside-jokes for people NOT in the Blogenning)
- API stuff so that a plugin for WordPress and Drupal can add rounds and entries
- User account stuff so you guys can change your password
Also, if you know ruby on rails or want to get in on designing the beast (I refuse to do any complicated CSS for this at this point *looks at Jaco and hopes his artistic sense may help with this one*)… you can join our GitHub site and ask to be put on the development team so you can have some input. Yay!
For the time being only my entries are entered into the database so you’re going to have to add your own damn entries because I’m much too lazy to do everyone’s. 😉 Once I get password retrieval working on the site, I have all of your user accounts made, so then you can just do a password retrieval and your password will be emailed to you.

Is the site supposed to be live in conjunction with this post, because right now I just get a directory listing of nothing much when I visit that url.
Whoops. Okay, I’ll have to post another entry whenever I get everything working right. XD
