Making my own site and blog

Blog Entry Still Under Construction
Rolling your own
First off I wanted to have my own website. I have always meant to make one but just have never actually gotten around to making it. I thought about jus t using an off-the-shelf solution and originally planned to do that. However I also like to code and doing your own projects helps you to become a better programmer. So I decided to write my own website, blog engine, and a few other things that I wanted to make.
This site is then a combination of my home website and resume, the code and technology behind the website is also part of that resume.
- LetsEncrypt and autocert
- http package
- template package
Core Site Features
Blog entries are written in standard html and injected using go templates.
In Progress / Still to do
- Blog Indexing by keywords
- Link Aggregator
- Blog Editing Interface (right now all editing is done by committing html files to the repo)
- Generalizing content loading - currently it is very hand-routed
