Hey look! My own site!

In my last post, I lamented not having a place to put my own stuff. Today I actually took a couple minutes to register a domain, set up DNS nonsense, and upload. Thus: this! Feels like I might have kinda lost the thread re: #100DaysToOffload, but this is fun, too.

The most head-spinning part of the process was coming up with the name. Ultimately taking the simple route, I ended up somewhere between neat and cheesy. I also think "sagev" and "space" being the same length is odd, but visually, I like it a lot.

The site is intended to be as small as possible, while still looking nice, and following all accessibility guidelines. It's definitely quick to load, but could afford a bit more polish on the second and third fronts.

I picked up the domain on Namecheap, and currently have everything hosted on Netlify. May I never exceed the limits of a free tier! It would be cool to self-host at some point, but as it stands, this is more than sufficient, and I don't need to leave a computer running all the time.

I wish I had more to say about this, because having my own site feels pretty exciting! But I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel for content as it is, so I'll just say I'm looking forward to doing more with it!
