I’ve spent the past few months working on my new website using a flat-file CMS called Yellow.
Basically, a CMS (content management system) is a type of software platform you use to build a website, specifically blogs, without much effort. WordPress is like that but unlike WordPress it doesn’t require a database which is what I try to avoid because I’m lazy and hate doing anything requiring back-end development, and WordPress has too many features that I don’t need. I won’t preach too much about Yellow so I’ll just say it’s done the job I wanted without a steep learning curve. I’m a simple man, I only need simple things.
For a while, I was using tumblr to do my blogging but after how clumsily they handled their whole NSFW content ban I decided to build my own blog.
So here we are— 2019. This would be the ~9th generation of my website’s layout.
