For quite long, I have been sitting on the idea of putting up and owning a cozy space on internet, which I can call my own. Where I can open up to the world, and put up stuff which I learn, or my miscellaneous thoughts. However, I never actually went around doing it because of sheer laziness and part fear of embarrassment that it would have brought, if I was no good (Imposter Syndrome is real, people) 😌. But finally I decided to get over that, and start to do that. Also, Reid Hoffman has been very vocal about the fact that
If you're not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you've launched too late.
So here I go. I hope it would be helpful to someone in some way.
I would also take this opportunity to explain the rationale behind why I decided to host my own blog, reinventing the wheel during the course, instead of going for a hosted provider like WordPress or Medium. The source code for this blog can be found under my Github Account. I have tried to summarize the reasons below, which in my opinion, should be taken with a grain of salt.
WYSIWYGeditor for the limited use case, which I can easily get through
markdownfiles and a
webpackloader for it. Also, having built it from bottom up gives me the sheer joy of being able to control each and every pixel of my blog. ✌️
