Here’s an outline of what I went through to build this blog. You can see the live code at github. Fork, checkout, and build Hugo to do the site generation. Create a github repo for this site. Generate the basic site markup from Initializr.com and copy it to j3ff.com/static. Set up a Google Analytics account to get basic site statistics. Set up a Disqus account for comments. Cargo cult the basic file structure and templates from spf13.com and xaprb.com.
I decided it was time to give blogging another try. I think it’s good for me to have a place to post the things I am working on. Right now it’s photography, generative art, and trying to build a staticly served blog using Hugo that I am interested in. At other times I lean more towards visualization, finance, programming or writing. I recently saw an old video by Ze Frank about unexecuted ideas being “Brain Crack” which inspired me to get something out in the world.
