Chris Nicholas: A new blog for 2024

It’s been a long time since I’ve published a blog post, two whole years. Part of the reason is that it took too much effort to create posts for my previous blog. I needed better DX. A few nights ago, feeling inspired after reading articles by Pedro Duarte, Rauno Freiberg, and Lee Robinson, I decided it was time to start over.

I’ve never seen Chris’s work before, but he’s written some cool things over the years. I enjoyed this post and used his guide to help create an animated mist behind my site name over here (something something everything is a remix).

A previous version of this post lamented the lack of an RSS feed on Chris's page, but the feed does exist, it's just not in the site's header data, so RSS apps don't automatically find it when you paste in the website URL. Here's the feed if you want to subscribe as I have. Shout out to reader Troy for giving me the heads up!
