I live a pretty public life. While not famous, I am associated with high profile organizations and businesses in my community. Like everyone, I am literally just a Google Search away.My personal website was intended to serve as a placeholder until the point I try to branch out and manage a web presence similar to that when I managed Radio Free Cybertron.To scrape together content, I wrapped my LiveJournal with an iFrame and loaded it onto my homepage. Because the contents of my Live Journal is not exactly professional, I tried to manage a second blog for my website. It failed, miserably. So for the last nine months or so, I just had my Twitter updates populate my index page.While I do not necessarily touch my LiveJournal like I used to, I do not have the time or inclination to manage two blogs.Through the magic of php, I have tapped into the rss feed that LiveJournal provides.Now when you go to BrianKilby.com, you get the ten most current LiveJournal posts. It is cleaner than the iFrame and easier to manage than having a second blog. I can keep my wild and crazy posts private and the rest of the crap can be as public as a 500 hit a month site allows.As I post more and more of the RFC Archives, the number of hits I get rises. It would be nice to have some content to greet people with.As I am by no means unique, this post basically serves as an FYI to those people out there facing the same problem.
