Now those 280 characters per tweet are pretty limiting,
so having a blog where I can document my projects is a necessity.
So finding my first project for my #111Challenge was not difficult.
- a very simple blog where I can document my projects
- blog posts need to be writable in markdown, so I can focus on writing them
What I did
Writing web pages with markdown is actually pretty awesome. 👌 It allows you to write your texts without the usual HTML clutter and without the need for a CMS.
That’s how a file for a blog post can look like behind the scenes:
--- layout: post title: 'Starting the 111 Challenge' --- I've always had lots of things in my backlog. Frameworks I wanted to try, programming languages I wanted to learn... So I thought, when I just restrict myself to do a project every day but only within 24 hours, I am able to check off many things from my list and force myself to try something new everyday.
Pretty simple, right?
So I tweaked the styling a little, added a cookie consent and wrote my first article!
First project: Done ✅
