RB Search Gizmos

A (Hopefully Final) New Home for ResearchBuzz Gizmos

For me 2022 was the Summer of JavaScript. I had used it in the distant past to make things like bookmarklets, but I was more imitating other people than making my own code. This past May I decided to really learn JavaScript, to see if I could create things out of it.

Five months later, I’m still learning and growing, but I’m also making – twenty-two ResearchBuzz Search Gizmos now live in what is hopefully their final home, a WordPress installation at SearchGizmos.com .

The WordPress installation means I can use tags, categories, and related posts to make the Gizmos easier to explore and find. There’s also an RSS feed and newsletter sign up if you want to get updates on new  Gizmos.

There will also be some advertising, which I regret, but existing in this world requires money and lately it requires more money every day. I’m sorry. I will try to be as transparent about it as possible. I’m also maintaining my red line of no sponsored posts.

What am I going to do next? More Gizmos. I have a whole file full of notes for MegaWikiGladys and Grim Libs and Tea Worldwide and Lookup the Hookup and more. I have a list of JavaScript skills I want to master. I have a bookmarks folder as long as your arm that’s stuffed with APIs I want to explore. In other words: Fall of JavaScript, Winter of JavaScript, and Spring of JavaScript.

If you have a spare minute, please drop by SearchGizmos.com and take a look around. I really think you’ll like it.

Thanks for reading.
