My new website is here!

April 1, 2024

It’s finally here!

My website has made a comeback after more than 12 years of absence. Is there any timing better than April Fools’ Day to announce a comeback?

I’ve been working on this for a while now and I’m super excited to bring it back to life today.

Where it all started

The old website from 2012

  • I just found out that I made the previous version in WordPress… I can’t even remember using WordPress for that long.
  • The main focus was blogging, but I ended up writing only 3 articles. I did manage to get my posts published on a webdesign blog from some other guy though. I sold my posts for $15 each. Those were the days.

Picking up where I left off, with a new website

  • Brand new design, built from scratch, with a focus on simplicity, typography and performance.
  • Using Astro as a static site generator, which is a joy to work with.
  • Hosted on Vercel, which is a great service for static sites.
  • Using Markdown for writing my blog posts notes, which makes me focus on writing instead of fiddling with a CMS.
  • I’ve come to appreciate the concept of digital gardening, a term coined by Maggie Appleton. I’m going to use this website as a place to grow my thoughts and ideas.
