Building the plane while flying it

Build the plane while you’re flying it1

New beginnings

In the February 2022 I finally decided to create my personal blog. I've chosen the Hugo as a framework for building it. On the landing page, it bravely declares:

The world’s fastest framework for building websites.
With its amazing speed and flexibility, Hugo makes building websites fun again.

and after using it, I can confidently say it really lives up to what it promises. It was a little confusing at the start, but after I got the hang of it, it was a breeze. But for some reason, after I've ported all may personal TILs to it, I stopped using it at all. It wasn't the framework's fault, the problem was that my life got out of control, and I was so overwhelmed with personal issues, this lead to me always putting blogging off to a letter date. But may be this time it will be easier sticking to it, because to help myself to keep blogging, I decided to blog about blogging. I know this may sound redundant, but I think it will be interesting because I want to share and document how this blog project is being developed. This partly because of my annoying habit of always starting a new instead of continuing an existing project, and partly because I want to journal my journey.

Building the plane while flying it

I will start from the very beginning and create this blog from the scratch. This series is called "Building the blog while flying it". In the spirit of famous startup quote/approach, "Building the plane while flying it"2. I think I will have a lot of fun. I am going to start by posting to my dev.to page and host blog repository on the GitHub. My first version of this blog is living in the blog-v1 repo.
