Introduction

This blog post is going to cover how I set up this website, how I am hosting it & what issues I have encountered.

Setting up the project

I was introduced to Hugo through Luke Smith’s youtube video on it. I then did my own research on it and decided that I wanted to build a website using it, as my CSS skillset is nigh nonexistant.

So I ran that first hugo new site command, and I fell in love. I have always liked Markdown and the idea of making a website based on it just rung true, as my alternatives where to use pandoc to convert the finished markdown documents just didn’t appeal to me.

So, once I had written my Markdown files, I had to select a theme and I ended up landing on KeepIt by LiuZhichao.

Hosting

I looked around the major hosting providers that operate in the United Kingdom, and I landed on Hostinger.

Honestly, there wasn’t really much that specifically drew me to them, apart from the nice looking cpanel.

Issues

So far, I’ve actually not ran across any major issues.
