I've been blogging forever it seems, I'm not overly proficient at writing and such but I do so enjoy doing it every now and then. I guess I started when I started to get into doing stuff online that wasn't just consuming but was creating, either words or client/server scripts.
I've had a Gmail account since not long before they became available - though by invitation only to start with, and you only had 5 invites to give away! I got one and my kids got one each and they've got really rather cool addresses as such!
It uses Twitter Bootstrap for the basic layout as it's just so bloody easy to get started using it and I've borrowed ideas from a html5 Doctor. I also love JS-Render so I'll be using that as much as possible.
The content of the posts is Base64 encoded (using Opinionated Geek's base64encode online tool) when it's entered into the spreadsheet and I guess I should open that up too so that you can copy the structure: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AiRgQIhodQXfdGZ5OV9INlNRME9YUnc2VUhmRGtPaVE&usp=sharing. It's simply a question then of adding the key to the script and you should be away!
I've a couple of other things posted on GitHub. The Canal Lock one is lovely so please have a look at that as well if you fancy! I've updated the Pretty Time one but haven't uploaded it as yet - I'll have to fix that!
The next step is to use something to make adding new content, perhaps using the Base64 code I've included from webtoolkit and Bootstrap-wysiwyg...? Of course, that might require some server-side scripting to put the post on a new line of the Spreadsheet. Comments should be easy enough to do as well I reckon as I can just put them on a new sheet of the Spreadsheet and refer back to the id of the post...
