I have finally started my personal blog! Welcome.
I decided to go with Zola as the static website generator, mostly because it's very fast (written in Rust) and has a nice template language. Compared to Hugo I like it much better, and it's got most of the features I needed out of the box.
If you like how this site looks, please check out my theme here.
The theme will probably go through some more tweaking, but I'm very happy with the end effect. Contributions are welcome!
I have decided to host the blog on GitLab mostly because I wanted to try something other than GitHub and Travis. I like the built-in GitLab CI/CD, it's been a fantastic experience so far!
