So I set up a Polywork page and it's...fine.

I really like the idea of having one space that people can follow where I can have updates about what I'm working on and what I've finished across the spectrum of "my work".

However, I really don't like it being yet another third party service.

Geez, this keeps coming up for me and it's a puzzle I've still yet to crack in any satisfactory way. I keep thinking there's some magical formula for handling this stuff combining the tools already at my disposal.

FWIW, at the moment I'm leaning toward setting up a work log on a jekyll install so I can do quick and easy updates via github.

I have a spare domain name hanging around for it, too.

I also just looked through my personal blog and tbh there's nothing there that I wouldn't mind even my coworkers seeing, which says a lot both about how I thought I was writing and how much I already trust these genuinely good people.

My alternative to Jekyll would be yet another Wordpress install.

I know, I know, but for something that's super low-friction, Wordpress is really hard to beat. I mean it even comes with some really nice themes pre-installed. And it doesn't require the command line or a github PR to update anything.

I dont like Wordpress, but even I appreciate what is on offer with it
