Finally got around to it

So I finally got around to putting up this blog that I've been meaning to do forever. Guess I was just a bit lazy but today I remembered a friend of mine telling me about OctoberCMS a few years ago. It didn't take very long to get everything set up once I had the domain, just bought one off namecheap and set up SSL, installed OctoberCMS and threw on a blogging theme and wham. Now I'm writing my first blog post.

Figured I might as well leave some useful links here for those that are interested in setting up their own blog.

I just bought this domain on namecheap, of course my first thought is to enable SSL because who doesn't like HTTPS, so I bought the Comodo cert they offer. But I hate having to give out too much personal info, not to mention those certs are meant for corporations and not individuals anyway. So I found this gist workaround for installing Let's Encrypt certs on Namecheap hosting.

October might not make much sense at first because it doesn't baby you like wordpress, but I've heard good things about it. Maybe I'll stick with it, maybe I'll change it, idk, but this guide helped me getting it all set up.

Anyway I don't have much to talk about right now so that's it for my first post.
