Welcome to lucas.land/blog! This site will be the home of my ramblings and projects.
The entire website(https://lucas.land) is running on a DigitalOcean Droplet(VPS), with Nginx for serving/reverse proxy. /blog is running Ghost as a lightweight CMS/blogging platform, and everything else is hand-coded.
DigitalOcean provides decently-well priced VPSes quickly, has all the necessary features, provides root ssh access, and perhaps most importantly for me, has a simple website/dashboard with great UI/UX.
