After several months, I have a website up and running where I can post content about my projects, share my ideas in the form of articles in my blog, and more.

Unlike many websites, this is a lightweight website with no ads, trackers, or unnecessary client-side scripts. It's also designed with accessibility and a wide variety of web browsers in mind. These factors make it so there is so much less wasted bandwidth with no unnecessary overhead for the user, and users of less popular browsers and different devices can access the site without something not working or being too clunky, unlike some of the most Chromium-worshipping sites where you're forced to use Chromium or Firefox because the CSS won't load in your favorite browser.

Here, I will be sharing my ideas in the form of a blog, and I may also have some guides. To notify people about new content, I am using RSS, which is a better notification system than email subscriptions, manually checking the site, or having to write a web scraping script.

This site is being hosted using GitHub Pages, but I plan to move to my own server. This will reduce my reliance on Microsoft, the company who owns GitHub, and allow me to do things like mirroring on IPFS and running my own PeerTube instance.
