My love for small, personal blogs and writing that is not SEO or advertising focused has always been strong, mostly calling back to my 90’s internet roots. From the era before the big central platforms like Facebook, when we all had independant sites, free GeoCities blogs, and the like. In that world, which still exists today, albeit smaller, easy quick sharing and likes did not exist. This meant that in most cases, as far as any specific blog author knew, you were writing into a void that no one was reading, which can still be the case.


Why couldn’t I just be fine with Nano and Sublime Text? I guess I can’t help but be curious!

VIM Logo

Up until a few days ago, my previous experience with VIM was limited. I’ve been using Linux heavily for years now, and it was just an annoyance. In the past my only exposure to VIM was AUR install scripts or source builds that forced me to check build files via VIM. What that really meant was it was that annoying text program, that I had no clue how to quit when it suddenly was on my screen! :w to save, and :q to quit, but not if your in insert mode…what?
