I’ve just added a SSL certificate to the yellowcottagehomestead.com site, like all the cool kids are doing nowadays (even though this blog doesn’t really need it, other than to avoid scary warnings by some dodgy browsers). Go secure!
It seems like I’ve been writing this blog for years, but it’s actually only been one year; my first post was one year ago today.
Here’s a picture from a similar (but not quite the same) angle as the blog header image… but with melting snow instead of a rainbow:
Just testing using Micro.blog to post to the site.
I’ve just edited the blog posts about building the chicken coop to only be in the building category, i.e. to remove the chicken category, so the latter now only includes posts with chickens in them. I also added a chicken coop tag to those building ones. That seems more useful.
I’m also thinking about changing the way I do posts, to use a caption below each photo, instead of a description beforehand.
Now this is a real blog; it just got its first comment spam.
I’m still getting this blog set up. I’m not sure what content I’ll post here; ultimately I want to document things like building a new chicken coop, and post photos and videos of our chickens, and getting into beekeeping, and the various other activities around the homestead.
Today I tweeted some screenshots of the Linea app, showing my latest chicken coop sketches.
