Why are you not using HTTPS?

github logo ・1 min read

It's 2019 and I still see websites not utilizing HTTPS on their websites.

I see websites with the option for HTTPS, but they don't force HTTPS.

Look, I get it. SSL certificates used to be a bit more out of reach for the common web developer.

It's easier now. You can get a Let's Encrypt certificate pretty much anywhere, any time. You can easily pop a few lines of code and force HTTPS. Hell, most web hosts can do this for you.

Why? Because your site is not secure with http.

Get a certificate and get your site secure.

You don't want to be the person who regrets not doing it sooner.

Mental Health Month in Tech: Three Good Things App

Every morning, I try to remember to write down or share three good things in my life. I wanted to make an app that others could use to get in the same practice.
