Another site done with Hugo in less than TWO DAYS

#1

It took me, literally, less than 48hs to design and build this site with Hugo.

My personal site, so mind you, its fairly simple.

The breakdown:
The design was tough: I didn’t wanted it to look like all other blogs. Caught me in a bad week too, so it took me around 5 hours I believe. Most of those hours I spent looking for inspiration and trying things. The coding part was a breeze, can’t really put a timer on that part.

6hs to shoot the video (prep the camera, charge the battery, download resolve to edit the video, find a suitable SD card which I couldn’t so I could only shoot 4 seconds of video, doesn’t matter, I make do with what I have) and less than 2hs to deploy the website with Amazon S3.

The result? Hugo built, AWS hosted. Beautifully simple blog.

True, with Wordpress you might be able to deploy a blog in ten seconds.

But to make it your own?

Only with Hugo.

48hs. Time’s up. Where’s yours?

P.S: I still can’t use integrity data check with the CSS and JS because of CORS (I presume, even when CORS is oka and anonymous). https://www vs https:// issue I believe. Oh well…

Great looking site! I love the vide in the top left. Short, quick load and just fits…

I am new to Hugo and haven’t switch my site over yet… This weekend it will be switched :slight_smile:

Thanks for sharing!

Looking great!

Heads-up - there’s a bug on the contact link at the bottom, clicking “Send Feedback/Contact Us” takes me straight to the “Thank you for writing” page rather than a contact form.

Nah, that’s by design.

Kidding! But kinda cathartic, ne? :slight_smile:
