A site revamp that was overdue

After a year long stagnation of my website I decided to take it upon myself to update the website after letting it gather some digital dust. Yeah, it happens to the best of us, right? But deep down, I knew I couldn't leave my online presence hanging like that forever. It was time to shake things up and bring back the positivevibes!

Laravel 11

Now, if you know anything about me, you know I'm an avid Laravel fan. So when Laravel 11 dropped, I was all over it like hot sauce on wings. This upgrade wasn't just about staying up to date; it was about flexing some serious coding muscles and making sure my website was running smoother than ever before.

I loved using this platform to share with the world, but I realised my website was missing something crucial: your voices! That's right, I wanted to hear what you had to say, so I decided to add a sweet little feature: reader comments. Now you can drop your two cents on my posts, and we can communicate like never before.

And another thing...

On the old site my posts were very simple and basic. I have therefore removed them and will start writing a new form of blog posts a few days time.

Reviving my website was more than just a tech project. When work gets stressful and the motivation to code lacks, I can just jump on this site and do whatever I want without a deadline and without scope creep.
