Website To-Do


  • import all nm’s long- and medium-form content to this Hugo site (from Blogger, Tumblr, old, etc.)

  • improve stylesheet so, for example, the HTML5 Kitchen Sink looks better

  • use web feeds and/or Twitter to announce changes to the site

  • update the site skeleton that is used in TGIH: Themeless & Gitless Introduction to Hugo



  • import nm’s short-form[1] content to this site (from Twitter,,, discussion groups[2] etc.)

  • improve the top-of page and bottom-of-page icons, which are currently ⍐ and ⍗

  • improve the admonition boxes and icons, which currently look like this:

This is important.
This is a note.
This is a tip.
This is a warning.


  • Change most tag (“TaxonomyTerm”) list pages so they are portals

  • Change top navigation bar so it now says: portals  meta (instead of about  connect  tags)

  • Change next/previous footer so it flows better on small screens (I use an HTML5 table to do this 😱︎)

  • publish Asciidoctor- and Hugo-based site🎉

2016 – 2019
~2013 – 2019[3]

Discussion and feedback

1. Short-form content is also known as micro content.
2. Discussion groups include Usenet, mailing lists, forums, discourse sites, comments on other websites, etc.
3. I pretty much decided on Hugo in ~2017 but periodically got so frustrated that I kept trying alternatives.
