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.
