It’s been around eight months ago, as of the time of writing this, that I decided to buy my own domain. I knew I wanted some kind of hub of some kind, I could hand out to people so they could find me on all the different platforms I use: YouTube, LinkedIn, GitHub and so on.
I also knew i wanted to create a new platform for myself… a personal blog! What I thought i needed was a new platform where i can freely post anything I want. I have a lot of interests from coding, to photography, and it’s nice now to own a blog for myself where I can categorize and post however I want. I’ll mostly be posting about projects or things I’m working on. Making this blog has been quite a project by itself, so here’s a post about it.
So eight months later it’s finally ready to be utilized.
When I started to work on the blog I decided to download the most bare bone theme possible and work from there. In the following image you can see the look I started with (on the left), and you can see how the blog looks like as of posting this.
The colors took a while to settle with. All i knew was that i wanted a dark theme. I ended up pulling the colors out of a still frame from the old Batman: The Animated Series. I found the still from moviesincolor.com that does fantastic color palettes based on movies stills.
I’m pretty happy with how the blog looks right now so I hope I’ll be taking good use of it.
