I'm so socially awkward about working on my personal site in public (e.g. planes, trains or cafés) that I made an "awkward mode" to hide any content about me

Laying out the goals & principles for my site
Oof! Just pushed out my first redesign on my site in several years. 🙈 Would love to know what y'all think. 💙 marcusnoble.co.uk

Netlify is what I always recommend folks do and pair it with a static site generator like Hugo or Eleventy. I run #HomebrewWebsiteClub (https://events.indieweb.org/2021/10/homebrew-website-club-nottingham-P9xE0w648Lqz) as a meetup to get stuck into building your personal website if you're interested ☺

“No one will ever find your website”😬 It’s like Polywork is trying to prey on people’s insecurities—especially beginners. IMO no social or professional network is nearly as good as a personal Website is to express ur identity & show ur work. Mine even replaced my CV years ago.

every weekend, I say to myself "I will finish my personal website and deploy it" every weekend, I lay on the couch doing nothing instead today, my domain auto-renewed

#IndieWeb is cool. You'd need to add a micropub endpoint to your blog that could handle standard requests + get IndieAuth set up which is fairly trivial unless you want to build your own. I'm slowly trying to add all these to my own blog. indieweb.org

I finally convinced my very talented work buddy @kevinpaxton82 to make his own site, and 1 day in it already looks ✨ amazing ✨ kevinpaxton.com

Thank you Carol Gilabert for the most on brand t-shirt I could ever have 😂
PSA: If you contact me to tell me my link to your site is broken, that's your problem not mine. You do have the ability to create redirects if you change all your URLs around.

I finally figured out what colours I want to use for my site rebuild. Just need to get off the sofa now, any minute now 😅

I've spent a little of my "productive" time tonight stripping back my blog to a basic UI. I want to make changes, but they're going to be small and over time, so I keep the noise to a minimum. I already feel better about it.

I don't like looking at analytics too much because it deters me away from focusing on the quality of my blog posts, but it's that time of year where I have a quick peak! This is how 2020 compares to last year. 🤯 Thank you all for taking the time to follow along💜 #bypawlean https://t.co/x3j5wjFAB8
👋🏻 So many new friends, hey! Thanks for reading. 💪🏼 My annual health post is always very popular (it is that random spike in users, this year it was 400) ✨ "Normal" posts get about 40-50 views ⏰ People aren't just clicking away instantly - thanks for reading my essays lol

I am on PTO for the next two weeks. Guess I no longer have an excuse to put off building a personal website

I've been posting a blog every day this year. It has been fun and stressful. But I'm in sight of my stretch-goal of ONE MILLION page views over the year. I need ~3k views per day for the rest of December. Better write some Controversial Tech Opinions™. shkspr.mobi/blog

Adding new bits to my site last night felt annoying and painful. Need to hurry and migrate to eleventy already 😅🏃♀️

This is something I strive quite hard to ensure, using tools like html-proofer and comparing against old sitemaps when I change things considerably with my site. It's also something that is quite infuriating when following links to a site that has now rewritten their URLs, so I've learned from that too!

Your blog doesn’t need my email address. You’re not that special. Especially not via a pop-up asking me to join your newsletter. Get outta here with that. Give me an RSS feed. Email pop ups are a sure fire way to make sure I close your site immediately.

A super interesting idea. I've been thinking recently whether I should maybe look at making this site dynamically rendered, but still backed with my site's content being in a Git repo
