What I'm Up To These Days

Creating My First Online Course

After months of planning, and years of wanting to create my own online course. I finally started.

I'm making my first online course on Obsidian a next generation note-taking / knowledge managment tool. As I write this, my course is still in development with a heavy discount for early supporters. Check it out here.

Rebuilding My Website (Again)

I've been working rebuilding this website (again). In 2019 it was hand-coded on pure HTML and CSS, but the time it took me to maintain that system was not sustainable.

Now I'm super happy (for real now) with my new set up. (which is still under construction(once more)).

I've decided to move this website from Hugo to Gatsby and I'm currently using the amazing Gatsby starter theme called chronoblog. Gatsby allows me to add the extra features I need to make this website the best it can be.

I also created a crazy method to symlink my website from Obsidian into Gatsby. That way I can write my blog-posts from Obsidian.

Rebuilding My Website

I've been working for the past month on rebuilding this website. It used to be hand-coded on pure HTML and CSS, but the time it took me to maintain that system was not sustainable.

Now I'm super happy with my new set up. (which is still under construction.)

I use Org mode in Spacemacs to write and organize everything. I export everything to this website with ox-hugo, with the help of the Hugo theme called Color Your World.
