Blog is Online

I’ve finally got my blog online. I wanted it done days ago but I’ve been a bit lazy.

It’s nothing too fancy. A static site generated with Jekyll hosted out of S3 and Route53 doing the DNS. It’s deployed using s3_website. When I can be bothered I’ll put Cloudfront or Cloudflare in front to get a bit more speed out of it.

AWS have added some nice redirection stuff so I could send http://swamphogg.com to http://www.swamphogg.com without any having to build something to do the redirects or doing it client-side.

Later on I’ll need to add something to nicely present a photo-gallery and the mobile view needs a little bit of work. For now though, it looks like it will do the trick.
