For the past few months I’ve been engaged with a lot of side projects and it happens that occasionally I want to write about what I figure, and even about whatever crosses on the street during my day. The obvious idea would be to setup a blog.
I like to self-host everything I can, and while I enjoy having my privacy and security I tend do it mostly out of the desire to know how stuff works. That leads me to over-complicating something as simple as using one of the existing blogging platforms.
Back in the day I used to run a WordPress instance, and out of pure wisdom I’ve deleted it. Back then I was yet to figure what proper backups look like.
Yesterday I’ve learned about Jekyll, a static site builder that apparently is as mainstream as it can possibly be.
I wanted to avoid live code this time and Jekyll sounds like a good deal.
This is (at least as of now) the result.
