This is my very first post on my blog, so I thought I'd talk about how I've built this site.
I'm just getting started here, but this is a Gatsby site with the content powered by the Contentful API. So I'm going with that Jamstack here; why? Because I'm learning a lot.
I've been using Node for a little while now, and I realized, especially for personal content like this - I really don't need to spin up a database or build a whole interface for writing and experiments.
Instead, I opted for a static site generator like Gatsby, and all I needed was a CMS. There's a fantastic tutorial here if you want to get started too. That's the quick version, and we'll leave it here for now.
Standby for some crazy updates in the future. 😎
