Initial Commit

Time for the yearly reboot of my personal website / blog.

I've come to realize something about this site. I have two conflicting goals:

  1. Use this as a sandbox to play with new web technologies
  2. Use this as a journal of my experiences in that sandbox

Unfortunately, previous incantations of this site have focused on #1 to the exclusion of #2. That is, I've packed the codebase of the site full of fun, interesting things; made cool vue.js components for the frontend; done all sorts of neat, interesting devops stuff; and left myself with a platform wherein writing about any of that stuff is a complete pain in the butt.

No more. I have new goals for this site now:

  1. I should be able to contribue to it anytime I want by writing some thoughts in markdown format
  2. I should be able to learn new, fun things by playing with this website

By inverting and rephrasing these goals, I feel freer to do some of the things I've wanted to do. This site is now bare-bones simple, as you can probably tell from the way things look. There's a Rust/Tide web application serving some simple markdown content that has been converted to HTML for your viewing pleasure. That's it. That's the site. Might not seem cool yet, but this is the first thing I've written in Rust so I'm pretty excited.

Anyway, thanks for reading. See you next time.
