Another new side project: privacy.garden
I’m not sure what it is with me and side projects at the moment, but I started another one today called privacy.garden. I’m a big fan of news aggregator websites, and thought it was about time there was one related to online privacy that I would visit regularly.
Unlike extinction.fyi, for which I manually update an XML file hosted via GitHub Pages, privacy.garden is an installation of WordPress hosted via a DigitalOcean droplet. I’m using the extraordinarily simple (and free!) WP RSS Aggregator plugin to import feeds from various privacy-related blogs.
The rather comically-bad combined emoji logo was created in about 30 seconds using this guide. I’ll replace it, hopefully with a custom-designed one from someone who knows what they’re doing. I may also tinker with the layout.
There is, of course, an RSS feed for the feeds that the aggregator pulls in which you can access at: https://privacy.garden/rss-feed
If you’ve got suggestions of blogs and other news sites to aggregate, please let me know!
This post is Day 98 of my #100DaysToOffload challenge. Want to get involved? Find out more at 100daystooffload.com.

Big fan of aggregation, but it never seems to reach its potential.
Looking forward to seeing how **WP RSS Aggregator** works out for you. I’ve used FeedWordPress a bit (scotedublogs.org), but good to have alternatives.
Yep! Seems good so far, perhaps because it’s free but with very useful add-ons (which pay for its sustainability, I guess)
