I remember the thrill of learning HTML in Boulder CO, in the mid 90s. Today, I still revel in the ability to self-publish and share things with the world from my tiny office in North London.

Curious how it works? This is a static site made with Hugo to replace an old WordPress site. It uses Amazon CloudFront as a content delivery network and Amazon S3 as the origin making the site extremely fast and secure. And it costs less than £0.20 a month to host.

I considered using one of the many, beautiful free themes out there but (embracing the DIY spirit) decided to design and code my own. It uses Twitter Bootstrap, Sass (for custom CSS), and ACE templates. It deploys in seconds using S3sync. The type is good ol’ Helvetica.
