As my second post in #100DaysToOffload, I've written a guide on how to use Hugo to generate a Simple.css website.
Just a friendly reminder to everyone to make sure you have a robust backup strategy! Since many of us control our own data on home servers and vps it's probably even more important. At a minimum get a portable external drive. For a more robust solution follow the 3-2-1 backup strategy (https://www.backblaze.com/blog/the-3-2-1-backup-strategy).
Don't wait until it's too late!
I've finally bitten the bullet. Encouraged by #100DaysToOffload I got my self-hosted website up and running. It's very barebones right now, but it at least allows me to post my first blogpost.
The site is based on simple.css but using hugo instead of jekyll. I'll probably write a future post about that.

I'm your run-of-the-mill linux and FOSS enthusiast (for over 20 years now). Switched over to linux permanently a couple of years ago.
For some reason I seem to be running mostly ARM hardware these days (several RPIs, pinebook pro, pinephone).
