I’ve rewritten my personal website! That’s something I tend to do a lot, but this time I wanted to do a quick rundown of the new site.
New design for the homepage.
New design for blog posts.
I’ve kept the rose-colored accents from my blog at ben.cv, which match the 🐙 emoji that I tend to use to “brand” my website.
The biggest thing I wanted to change for this new iteration was to move to Ghost as my blogging platform.
The previous iteration used just plain markdown files, which meant that I had to fire up VS Code to write. That led to me (surprise surprise) not writing a lot of blog posts.
Instead, I’ve been using Ghost for a personal blog for a month now, and I really like it. The editor is really simple but feels great to write in.
I merged my month of personal blog posts into this new blog, and I’ll be writing future technical blog posts in Ghost (I kept the backlog in markdown). I’m using tags in Ghost to separate between more personal blog posts (like this one!) and programming how-to articles (which aren’t very interesting to read if you haven’t explicitly searched for it and stumbled on my post).
Overall, I’m happy with the rewrite! Hopefully the switch to Ghost means that I’ll have an easier time writing new blog posts.
