I have just put the finishing touches on my blog. The deployment is setup through AWS(stack below). I also completed some final housekeeping, such as finding a favicon, setting up Google Analytics, and configuring my hexo deploy command.

Now, I must turn my attention to filling the blog with content. Over the next few months, I will be trying out different content styles to figure out what works best for me. I am hoping to end up with short form daily posts and long form weekly posts.


Deployment Stack

  • S3 to host all of the files.
  • CloudFront to distribute those files to edge servers in the US, Canada, and Europe.
  • Certificate Manager to get a free SSL certificate and set it up on my CloudFront distribution.
  • Route53 to manage the domain name.
