As it is the case with most of us in this most interesting of times, I have a lot of time in my hand. Hence, I finally managed to muster the effort and put this site together. The final push was when I and a friend started reading a blog I maintained 13(!) years back, and we both regretfully agreed that I was way funnier and profound when I was barely 20 than I am today. Here's to hoping practice makes perfect and some of that mojo maybe captured in time!
One of my goals with a personal site was to not just make it a simple blog, or something that takes too much time either. Ideally a site that doesn't cost too much money, is still customizable, and looks okay despite my abysmal design skills. A year ago, I stumbled on the site by Noah in reddit, and asked him if I could fork his site. He was more than happy with that (thanks Noah!).
So now we have (what I think is) a slick site powered by gatsbyjs, and uses GitHub Actions to deploy the static site to S3! Still need to figure out SSL and a publications section, but my primary next goal is to be able to seamlessly push markdown posts from my mobile but that seems tricky for now.
Here's to exciting times!
