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.
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.
