Grant, I've been trying to build a persona, as you put it, for years. At first I was against it. I was brought up with the idea that it is being prideful to boast about yourself. So, I didn't post anything. At some point I learned about WordPress and created an account there. But I just didn't get blogging, plus my upbringing not to brag. So, all I did with my WordPress blog was using it sort of like an online Favorites folder. I just posted links to sites I found interesting, mainly so I could find those links later. Finally, I think it was Steve Jones, conveyed to me the idea that posting online could help others. Then's when the light went off and I started to post things. I've not gotten far, on WordPress at least, but I'm getting better at it. I've got a question and a problem I've run into.
First the question. Grant, in your post you said that you've automated "... all of that stuff together". What stuff have you automated? Posting? Or posting to one platform, automatically sending something to another platform? Or something entirely different?
Second is the problem I've run into. I want to post a blog to my WordPress account and to my GitHub directory, on an issue I'm interested in sharing. However, I've run into a problem trying to push my commits to GitHub. In this case, my GitHub I'm trying to push to is public. When I try pushing to the repo, GitHub stops me and warns me that my private email address would be exposed as a part of the act of pushing the commit. Of course I don't want that. GitHub does provide a No-Reply, fake email address that looks like its from GitHub. But the solution provided informs me that implementing it would affect, as I understand it, all my Git actions on my development machine. I also use Azure DevOps Services for source control and I use Git on Azure DevOps, too. I do NOT want this GitHub solution to change how I interact with Azure DevOps! What are your suggestions for resolving this issue?
