Hello Static Site

If you're reading this I've managed to get my static blog up and running!
During 2021 I added web development to my toolbox of skills particularly focusing on web apps and learning just enough to build what I needed.
Setting up this site I feel like I've got a blank canvas and the ability to build the site that I've always wished I could have had. It feels like I finally have my own place on the internet to share and send people.
One key approach I've taken while building the site is working in a 'just in time' fashion. Yesterday I setup the barebones site and got it online. Today I wanted to write a (this) blog post, so I added the content layer. The idea that I only ever add to the site when I need a feature and avoid upfront planning are already paying off!
Anyway this post was only meant to be a placeholder 📦 – will keep the blog updated as I build out the rest of the site and try to document it here.
