Day 2 – Simplicity

2021 Nov 9

This is day 2 of my effort to write everyday for the next 30 days.

I've been trying to do things simpler these days. Modern web development has been experiencing a shift towards more complexity and configuration. That's not a bad thing but it has made it less enjoyable for me.

So for my own site, I decided to go old school and generate each page with handwritten HTML/CSS. It takes me back to 1999 when I launched my first personal website on AngelFire. Though it's tedious, it has made me appreciate what little it takes to publish to the world. And the simplicity makes it that much more enjoyable.

There's a very good chance that I'll get tired of maintaining this method. But I'm positive that I'll continue to try to keep it simple.
