Hello world, welcome to my personal website and blog! Feel free to look around.
After months of working on this website in my free time, it’s finally here. Let’s have a look at how I built it and what to expect in the future.
The blog part of the website is built with Jekyll, a static site generator. That means no backend, no databases, no paying for hosting and no worries. Just text posts in markdown, templates in HTML/CSS and Liquid, all rendered by Jekyll and served by GitHub Pages.
To bring out that “personal” part of the website, I used Bulma CSS framework. Easy customization through Sass variables allowed me to set the colors, typefaces, etc. to create the look and feel that suits me. A typeface used for the headlines is Space Grotesk, and icons were provided by Iconify API.
I made this blog for practice, fun, and for documenting my learning process. I will write about whatever I find interesting and valuable, such as CTF writeups, my projects, learning experiences, hackathon experiences, challenges I have encountered, and so on.
When it comes to the posting frequency, there are many variables that could affect it. For now, I will just go with the flow. I would say I will post at least once a month — sometimes more, sometimes less.
Thank you for reading and have a great day.
