TLDR; I wanted to restart my presence on the web with a new handle and establish foundations for discover-ability, this is a list of what I did.url
- Start a new
- Create a new
- Create a new
- Generate a new landing page via Vercel
I wanted to start fresh.
I wanted to be able to have a space and accounts that are unified under a common similar handle.
I wanted to be able to share/link this to my LinkedIn profule and establish a presence that could point to the "me" that is seen in professional settings.
I wanted to differentiate my presence on social platforms that was created at a different era/time in my life.
My other Twitter account was noisy and not curated or focused on software development entirely and with that came this mix.
I wanted less noise.
I registered a domain,
typingona.computer, that is able to receive email and so I created a new
I went to both
GitLab and created an account using a similar username.
This provides a clean slate to start projects and also make decisions on how I want to organize them.
At the moment I am considering using a monorepo that would encompass all related projects.
Here we are! I am writing this on the new account to document my work and also provide a space to capture my thoughts, ideas, etc.
I am also looking at
forem and considering registering for that as well. (I have never used
forem and so I am unsure as how to use it!)
Using the newly created GitHub account, I went and registered for Vercel's personal account using the Next.js Blog Template.
And there we are!
The beginning to establishing a new Web presence on the internet.
What I plan to do next after writing this initial post on
dev.to is to start working on http://mannyis.typingona.computer so that I can either automate posts here to land there or posts there to land here.
