I've rewritten this website using Nim now! The source code is available on my GitHub. It simply converts markdown files into HTML and stores them alongside a checksum. I'm using the Jester web framework.

Motivation

Personal websites pose a quality of authenticity to me, a quality that I don't find replicated on social media profiles. Here's a few other reasons for why I enjoy personal websites, and why I want my own.

  • Writing is good, and I don't write enough.
  • Publishing to other writing services puts my content at the whims of others.
  • I enjoy seeing how others personalize and organize their content.

Design

The simple design of this website is inspired by gwern.net. The 'F' image in the header is an upscaled initial from an old book, royalty-free.
