Evolution happens via iteration. Just like mother nature and man-made products, my personal blog is no exception.
When I first created this website in December 2019, it took about 4 hours of hacking and stitching existing Webflow components that I found on the web. Since June 2020 when I became regular at publishing new posts, the website would receive minor updates and changes as and when required.
Over the months, I've hacked together too many styles and CSS classes due to which a technical debt of sorts accrued. I also wanted to overhaul the feel and readability of the blog into sometime more consistent.
More specifically, here's all the little things I wanted to change:
You could say that I built the entire blog from scratch, because that was easier than fixing the mess I had made 😂
Total time to rebuild the site:
If I did things right, most of you would notice no difference when you visit the blog.
But I'm personally pleased with how consistent things are, how easy it is to modify site-wide styling, and how readable the posts are on mobile.
There's a lot I have in store for my personal website in 2021. I shall unveil more as we go. Stay tuned!
