I think that it is time for me to publish the last post on this blog using WordPress as a domain. As you probably already know, GitHub is my favorite company and I have decided to switch my blog to a completely new domain.
I have published a couple of posts exclusively on the new domain and backed up every post from this domain to my new address (with one exception, but I’m working on it). I feel confident now to make the switch and I started to feel really comfortable using GitHub + Jekyll as a blogging platform, so I’ve decided to drop by and say good bye to my old domain.
From now on, you can follow me on r3bl.github.io. Be sure to use the http version of the site because https version is currently not properly implemented in the code. If you run into some issue while browsing the site or you miss a feature that I had implemented on this domain, feel free to report it here.
As always, you’re more than welcome to contact me anytime on firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope that you’ll continue to read me on my new address.
So, this is my second (or maybe even third?) time trying to join the Mozilla community. The previous attempts did not go as I thought they will, so I’m ready to start again. In my previous attempt I tried to contact my local Mozilla community, but they seem to be pretty inactive these days so that attempt didn’t go too well. Anyway, it’s time to try again.
Why do I want to try again exactly?
Well, it’s been a couple of years since I started using Mozilla’s service in every opportunity I get. I’m using Firefox and Thunderbird all of the time, I started chatting on IRC regularly (you can find me on Freenode almost all of the time), I do have some kind of coding skills and thanks to elementary OS, I started to feel pretty confident in testing out beta software. Other than that, I do have a lot of translation experience, translating projects like reddit, The Tor Project, elementary OS (and all of the software it contains by default) and the list goes on and on. I also happened to have a lot of free time lately, so the only question is why shouldn’t I help a project that’s doing so much to help us who use free software regularly?
So, what I will be doing then?
I’m going to test out Mozilla’s services as much as I can. I’m going to help my local team to translate all of the products to Bosnian language, and, if I start to feel confident enough, I’m going to start writing some code for Mozilla in my spare time.
Come and join us!
Come and join us at mozillians.org! You can find my freshly created profile there by visiting this link.
For the start, it’s time for me to stop writing this blog post and check out my mail, join the Mozilla’s IRC and so on and so on. I hope that this attempt is going to be much much better than my previous one and that I’m going to start contributing to Mozilla on a regular basis.
