So, I love what indieweb folks are doing with #Hugo. That would require me to learn another thing and get a VPS.
I could stay with #Grav which I'm using for my art site. There's a small, small, tiny, smattering of folks who have some indieweb working. It also works on the shared hosting I have.
Then, there's #Koype coming around the corner.
Am I in a rush? I guess not?
I need to really analyze what my desires are. I like some of the #indieweb stuff because of the ease for people to comment via their own sites, masto, etc. I also like that it is my home site connected to others and not the other way around, if that makes sense. Like write as feels like it is like medium/tumblr.
I am posting on the web, so I am throwing privacy out already. 😅 Maybe the artist in me just wants to add a bit of flair to my own blog. Gah, content is all that matters, me!
@kaushalmodi You said, "get a VPS" but then you said you're only paying for the domain? Are you using Netlify with github to host a hugo site, so you aren't paying for a VPS?
Sorry for that confusing quoting. I did not say "get a VPS".
I just quoted you saying that, and presented my alternative approach:
1. Buy domain (optional)
2. Use Netlify
3. Host + deploy from any of the major git services: GitHub, Gitlab, Bitbucket
4. Free HTTPS, etc. aka profit
If you don't buy a domain, you can always host your site on YOURCUSTOMAVAILABLENAME.netlify.com.
Summary: You can experiment the whole thing without spending a penny.
@kaushalmodi Thanks. I watched a tutorial on Netlify and thought that. I didn't realize that was a quote from me. Oops.
