pens, paper, and pixels

A few words on how this blog was made.

Tech stuff

The blog is created using the Hugo blog engine. I write all my text in Emacs org-mode, and export to Hugo using ox-hugo. The theme I use is derived from Bilberry, thanks to Sascha Brendel for writing it and making it available freely.

The blog is stored in a GitHub private repository, and automatically published and hosted using Netlify.

The logo was written using a stub nib on a Conklin Word Gauge pen. I then scanned it in, and converted to vector art using Inkscape, saving it as the SVG for this site. The favicons were created in Inkscape, and resized using GIMP.
