In my new project, I want to track a tiny bit of information. Instead of pushing Google Analytics into it, I’m running a minimum viable analytics approach.

Just enough analytics

When we need to gather statistics or other logs from our projects, we don’t always need to use full, privacy-invading analytics solutions.

Idea for new side project

April 2, 2021

After moving my site to a new domain and technology, I want to see how quickly I can build a side project with this stack. It will be a search for brand logos, or potentially their branding guidelines.

When I changed my domain name, I had to make sure none of the existing links to my site broke.

Keep your links and SEO when moving domains

When changing from one domain name to another, we can use redirects to keep all existing links in place and avoid a dip in search engine rankings.

Rebranded to domhabersack.com

March 26, 2021

For years, everything I did ran under the brand “islovely”. It started to feel impersonal, so I retired it in favor of using my own name for these projects.

As I am updating my social preview images, I often need to reset the cache on Twitter and LinkedIn. This issue explains how to do that.

How to flush Open Graph previews on social networks

Sites like Twitter and LinkedIn cache the preview image that appear when sharing links. We can clear that cache to have them pick up new versions faster.

Submitted business plan for review

March 23, 2021

I need a “certificate of sustainability” for my business plan. I submitted the latest version to a provider for review. The process will take about two weeks.

Talked to a lawyer about incorporation

March 15, 2021

In an hour long consultation, a local lawyer helped me answer questions I had been unable to find reliable answers for online.

My stack

These are the tools and technologies I use to build projects, both for myself and my clients.

Featured project

As my first attempt to sell something online, I am turning some of my icons into a product. Many of them will be free for personal use. Commercial use will require a paid license, which also unlocks additional features.

A preview of some icons included in the set.

When you know too much to be helpful

Once you speak the language experts in your field use every day, it becomes harder to remember what it was like to not know what you know now.

What a “target audience” could look like

Building for everybody is as bad as building for nobody. By defining an audience, we can focus on activities that support those we want to help.

Instead of navigating many layers of directories when importing files, we can use aliases that cover that error-prone part for us.
