Launched my website! Starting simple. Posting photos, comments from Disqus, RSS feed, and not much else. More to come.
The details: Powered by Jekyll. Hosted on Netlify. Can be updated from my phone with some Siri Shortcuts and Working Copy. Not much else.
One thing I noted hard from the Great Guitar Build-Off was that the hardest part was getting votes. Much of this was algorithms designed to encourage you to pay to access your own followers. I don’t have access to all 700 of you. And the friends and folks that shared my posts don’t have access to their followers and friends.
So this is the start to building my own following outside of social media. No worries, I’m not looking to charge for access to my content. I’m not an influencer. Though I will be selling a few instruments this year.
