A while back, I noticed that a lot of the memes sent in the #memes channel were from Reddit, specifically r/ProgrammerHumor. Since I was bored, I wanted to make a bot that takes the top posts from that subreddit and post them in the Discord channel.
Whenever I want to add content to my website, I have to do a few things:
- Open terminal, navigate to the website directory, and start the Hugo server
- Open the website directory in Finder
- Open the markdown file for my post with Typora
After I published my previous blog post, I sent it to my friend. He responded by sending me his first blog post, which was similar to my first. In his post, he outlined the process of setting up his website with Hexo and Netlify, which was possible because it was a static site.
I’ve always wanted to start a blog and just write about things that I want to write about. However, the website builder that I was previously using (Adobe Portfolio) had nothing for blogs, so it never happened. Last night (technically this morning), I was thinking of some cool stuff that I could write about, and I decided that I would create one with WordPress. I woke up, instantly got on my computer, and started making this.
