I built a perfect note taking system

Shopping lists, class notes, technical documentation, time and place of important appointment - all of these things are difficult to keep in our heads, therefore we tend to write things down.

How i set up my self-hosted hugo blog

Hello World! My first blog post will be about how i set up and hosted my site with hugo, docker and nginx. There are many platforms to write a blog on - you can create your website from scratch or use a wordpress site, you can write on already established platforms like medium or dev. I did’t chose to write on those platforms as i wanted to learn something new. I have heard some good things about hugo and i decided to give it a shot....
