Hey there, let me tell you about the journey of building my blog. It all started back in 2017 with a static website using Middleman, which was hosted on S3 and CloudFront. It was simple and affordable, but writing articles with Markdown was a huge pain, especially when it came to adding images to posts. I've kept it live as an archive here: archive.emagalha.es
Last month, I decided to rewrite the whole thing using Ruby on Rails 7. I wanted to learn more about Turbo and Stimulus, and I've loved the process so far. In just a few weeks, I managed to get everything up and running smoothly.
But I'm not done yet. My plan is to make it as user-friendly as possible and to implement tools that can help me grow my audience. Later, I want to offer my code as an open-source application that anyone can use, even if they don't have a lot of technical knowledge.
I'm really excited about this project, and I can't wait to see where it takes me. So, join me on this journey as I share my progress and insights along the way. Let's build something amazing together!
