Adventures in blogging

So my newest site is about pareidolia which I think is an interesting subject. It's still in its early stages, using a data import from yet another of my old sites that I ran with a friend of mine. This makes three websites I'm running out of the same JVM on my server now. It'll be interesting to see how many more I can cram in there before my VPS explodes. CPU and RAM utilization are still supposedly minimal. I actually plan to redo my old faltering FF1 site entirely in Clojure too, which is probably the largest Clojure project I plan to undertake in the foreseeable future.

I'm still trying to come up with some kind of "how to make a blog in Clojure" tutorial once I nail down a good way to do it. The code for my blog has "grown organically" (i.e. become a mess) beyond the point where I'd inflict it upon the world without substantial cleanup. Probably easier to start over from scratch with something that's more demonstrative.

I'm also not too savvy on many of the "right ways" to do things in Compojure, as per this discussion. That's the good and bad thing about using a Lisp. You can pull off almost anything. There is no underlying structure to the code other than structure you impose. It's easy to write a mess.
