Building a blog

For a while now I wanted to build a proper place where I can publish some thoughts and write a bit about the things that interest me as well as challenges I encounter and (hopefully) overcome.


I’m not going to set any limitations on what it is I’m going to write about. But if you are interested, here are just a few topics that are very likely to pop up here, in arbitrary order: Programming, Gentoo and Alpine Linux, OpenBSD, music making, sound engineering, Go (the game, not the language).

Starting with the basics

I prefer to keep it lightweight. I’m using Hugo to generate this site, and wanted to start minimal without having to write the theme from scratch. I might do that in the future, but for now I’m using a modified version of simple-hugo-theme and will see where my direction takes me from here.
