How to Build a Blog Like This: Intro

The whole thing started with: “I think I want to create a blog”. I had a few ones before, those were either all-in-one hosted solutions or self-installed WordPress sites. WordPress was a tempting pick this time (as always) but I’ve played a little with Jekyll and Hugo recently and I liked them. So I negligently threw the red button with the text “Deploy WordPress” back to the shelf and I brought up a little toolbox that has the text JAM Stack on it from my shed (not bikeshed), also I liked the idea of hosting the blog on GitHub Pages.
