joeplaa.com WordPress blog

2019 March 15

I almost burned out twice between december 2018 and april 2019, so I decided to finally do something I wanted to do for a long time: start my own blog. Apart from having a place to articulate my thoughts, it was also a way of learning how to build, host and support a WordPress blog.

Setting it up was done fairly quickly, but it took me some time after to really understand what I was doing with all the plugins and optimizations. I first had my blog hosted by a web-hosting company, but in March of 2020 I transferred the site to a self-hosted AWS Lightsail instance.
