So today marks the thirtieth day of the Blogrimage, and I am nowhere close to having completed thirty posts. Nor am I satisfied with my progress on my blogrimage projects. Getting sick definitely hampered my efforts, but there's also the fact that my overall busyness makes it difficult to take on new projects.

Did I mention yesterday that I've been sick for a week? I thought so. Then why am I still awake tonight? Working on the blogrimage, of course. For the next couple of days, I'm putting my Drupal 8 blogrimage aside and focusing on the site that I told Pradeepan I'd help him build for this. And by help, I basically mean, do it, because it involves figuring out all kinds of really finicky Drupal modules that don't work as advertised.
tl;dr: Go check out blogrimage.tv with the understanding that it's not done yet!

All in all, by the time I was done being sick, I'd missed almost a week of my blogrimage.
That's right. I didn't even touch a computer for four days, so I definitely skipped out on my blogrimage by being sick. This really hasn't worked out as planned.
But I did make some progress tonight. I submitted a patch against the Drush bug I filed back on day 6 or so.

I'm not sure how I missed two days. I thought I posted something on Saturday, but I guess not.
tl;dr: I time on Saturday building a test web server, did church audio stuff on Sunday afternoon, and did some configuration work on blogrimage.tv tonight, so there's not much to report on my Drupal 8 blogrimage project.

When I checked the site today, I realized that all but one of the photos I'd attached to the Summer Vacation story were missing. Not sure what went wrong, but I uploaded and saved them again. Hopefully they'll stay in place this time!

Some days you get a lot done. Some days you go out to lunch with the guys and are a little unfocused when you get back. Well, that's kind of what happened, but today was actually a pretty productive day. Worked through a site upgrade this morning, then got sucked into reading a week's worth of Drupal news (courtesy of The Weekly Drop) and learning a whole bunch of useful stuff after lunch, then digging back into the rest of that upgrade. So no work on other projects today.

Today's blogrimage exercise was to try to make the site look a little bit nicer. This is by no means a final theme, which is why I named it Threadbare. The name Threadbare is a pun; it's based on the core Stark theme and incorporates the "fabric" of The Green Bag in its background image.

Ok, first an update for the non-nerds following my blogrimage! Pictures are back on TheGreenBag.com and I finally got around to reformatting the How I Spent My Summer Vacation story from 1999 into a single (readable) page. So the main contents of the site (our family story circa 2004, the history of The Green Bag, and the 1999 summer mystery tour) are all intact once again.

Not much progress to report today, but didn't want to miss a day's post on the blogrimage. Spent some time today testing patches and researching. That's about it.
