Finally, a blog 🚀
Since the dusk of my software development career, I've always maintained some sort of website that hosted a little bit of information about me; including my portfolio. From a Github pages site to a free domain name obtained through the Github Students' pack, and finally to a domain that I bought and paid for. Progress, right? All this while, I never wanted to go for an established blogging platform; say Medium or Ghost. I wanted to keep everything within my control.
But the main challenge was time to allocate time myself and write code for that particular website. Spoiler alert: I never did.
So, how does this web page your currently reading come into existance? Well, I used the Tailwind Next.js Starter Blog template. (Shout outs to the maintainers!) With a bit of customization, I was good to go.
Why choose the Tailwind Next.js Starter Blog template?
- Better SEO
- Markdown support.
- Familiar tech stack (Nextjs)
- Easy customization
- Markdown (MDX variant)
- Namecheap for domain
- Vercel with a custom domain set up
- Zoho for custom email. (A generous free plan - upto 5 addresses)
- Google Analytics
