hello world

This is my first blog post of 2019! I had some difficulty finding a blog generator that didn’t have a ton of bells and whistles that I didn’t need, but I finally found Hexo - and some nice person had also built a plugin to help encrypt pages that you want to keep private. (Other options I considered: Hugo, Jekyll, just using Google Sites like I used to.)

I don’t know if I’m going to write any public blog posts yet, but it’s nice to have the option to be able to do that in the future. I also really like the themes that were available - this one is really simple and clean!

I still have to do more reading of the Hexo docs to figure out how all this works - ideally I’m able to exclude personal blog posts from the list of any technical writing that I end up doing.

(Also things on this website may be periodically broken or look weird because I’m messing around with the theme’s CSS and I don’t have a lot of experience doing front end yet. It’s fun learning about it though! So far.)
