You got to this website somehow, so I am going to assume you already know who I am… No need for redundancy! 😎
Over the years I’ve had a myriad of solutions on where to put my thoughts. Starting out with a hosted website, I installed WordPress and soon began spitting out content about my current school projects, ideas and other irrelevant ramblings. My WordPress blog (security holes aside) aged poorly so I eventually moved to my first VPS at DigitalOcean with a 60$ student credit from GitHub, and tried out hosting my own stuff there. Fast forward a little bit and I started writing in Medium. It didn’t last very long. The problem with writing in Medium is that I censored myself from writing with fears that my content isn’t up to par when compared with content that other people write there, so I’ve kept my eye open for new things to try out.
This Hugo thing is cool: it does footnotes3,
inline code and even:
rm -rf / --no-preserve-root
System.out.println("The lamb lies down on Broadway");
Can you believe how gorgeous that looks? Me neither.
This way I’m still hosting my own websites (which is why this one sometimes might not be up!), and I get to keep my content in my own space. Now I can write stupid shit and maybe some people will get a few laughs out of it in a couple of years. Neat.
- I don’t really know why those guys sold themselves to PluralSight, but man am I sad they are gone. I loved CodeSchool.
- Which I adore since I tend to use parenthesis a lot when I don’t have them.
