Hey guys! I want to personally welcome you to my new and fresh blog. I had the idea of starting a blog since quite a long time and the start of 2017 was the perfect opportunity to kick my butt and make it happen. I have to say I underestimated (A LOT!) the amount of work required to self-host my...
