Around 15 minutes ago, I remembered that this is what I am doing today, and decided to just go for it. This may be an incredibly stupid idea. Here are the issues with it:

(Actually, for that last point: It might be worth removing the donate buttons from my front page. That makes me feel like I am dependant on charity. I’m not. I’ll revisit this later. That may have a poor marketing aspect. For now, I’ve added in a note that I am not a charity.)

I set up this GitHub repository to be my blog, so that people can follow along. I plan to tweet about it as I go along, too. It might be interesting to make an automatic GitHub Blog to Twitter conversion kit, actually, that people could use to do things like this.

Let’s scope that out next. I’ve opened an issue for that in #1.

What’s next?

Well, I have a few things I need to do today.

I think that’s it, for my actual needs for the day. Besides that, I’m wide open.

First, let’s tweet the basic repository, and then let’s add this Introduction post to Buffer for the time being. Actually, I’m using GitHub, Twitter, and Buffer for this. Maybe I should reach out to them and ask for sponsorship? Maybe I can make a site for this blog on Netlify, too, and then reach out to them.

I’ve opened #2 and #3 just now for those. Ok, let’s go.

Beam me home, Scotty!
