title: New Personal Site
---

I've owned the `mauromorales.com` domain for a few years now. I originally got
it as a way to build a "personal brand" but I've only used it for my email and
to blog random stuff every now and then. This is going to change now as I build
my new personal site. In this post you'll learn about the why, how and what in
case you'd like to do one for yourself.

## Self-hosted

I've used different services like Tumblr and Medium in the past. They are
great, specially if you don't have the technical skills to set up a blog or you
can't be bothered learning how to do it. Unfortunately, I think the power we
give these companies by giving them the keys to our content is too much. I
don't want any company deciding on the experience that people who read my posts
will have. 

- I want to fully own my content
- I want my content to be served on a platform that I think is respecting
  readers' privacy.

## Static site

I've used WordPress to build pages before. It's great and I totally recommended
for the right context but I don't think my personal page is that kind of
context. I want this page to be as simple as possible and adding a database is
an unnecessary step in this case. I'm more than happy to write markdown files
on my favorite editor. It makes up for a good writing experience and I believe
that readers will prefer a faster loading time.

## Default web fonts & no JavaScript

Talking about load times, nowadays we have powerful devices and high-speed
internet. However I don't think that is a reason to load our pages with lots of
unnecessary JavaScript, which only makes the user experience worse (remember
this is a web site not an application).

- Neovim
- Nginx
- Digital Ocean
