It's been a while since I published anything on my personal website. Work at modmore and for my freelance clients simply take a lot of time, and blogging has never been something I did on a regular schedule.
That doesn't mean I don't have ideas on what to write - quite on the contrary. There's probably two dozen unfinished posts I've been meaning to complete and finish, but I never had the time.. or rather, the feeling it was urgent enough to make time. Do people even visit my blog anyway?
Now we've built something really cool with modmore that is going to change that - and already has.
The all-new shiny MODX.today website is a project from modmore that aims to be a daily-ish news source for all things MODX. It complements official sources, like the MODX blog, with editorials, reviews, tutorials and links to other interesting articles around the web. And with a weekly reading list, anyone can stay up to date with minimal effort too.
But best of all though, it's a project for the community. Anyone can submit an article and I hope that people who didn't feel like they have a platform to publish their thoughts and knowledge, will find their way to MODX.today now. Together, we can build and maintain an awesome news platform that keeps people updated and excited about the many initiatives and great tools around MODX.
Christian Seel did the design and front-end, while I worked on making it work and writing a bunch of content so we have a buffer to get through the first few weeks while we continue producing content. There are some great articles lined up, including a preview of the new Premium Extras from Extras.io, answers to age old questions about the MODX brand, a couple of tutorials going into more detail on how we built MODX.today and lots more.
As for this site? It's still a place for me to publish some of my thoughts, so maybe we'll see some more posts here now that I've been getting into the habit of writing more. Maybe not. Time will tell!
