I’ve tried different blog platforms over the years: ghost, wordpress.
Hugo is very popular nowadays, so I wanted to try it out.
Moreover, I came across that theme that looked cool: https://themes.gohugo.io/hugo-papermod/
I don’t have a specififc goal in mind for that blog, it’s a just a cool way for me to look back and see what I’ve been doing.
I also wanted to try out AWS Amplify.
I’m becoming very familiar with gitlab and
gitlab-ci.yml and wanted to discover what AWS had to offer.
After playing a bit with it, it was quicker than I thought.

And voila, it’s up and running!
I then just had to change the
baseURL: "/" in config.yml in order for the assests to load correctly.
