Happy 4th Anniversary!!

Yash Agarwal

Yesterday was the 4th anniversary of this blog. On 3rd April, in 2016, I posted first article on this blog. Since then, this blog and its design have gone through many changes. The latest iteration was just a few days back. I also experimented with a CMS (content management systems) like Wordpress and a variety of SSGs (static site generators) such as Jekyll, Pelican, and Hugo. For the majority of the last 3 years, I have stayed with Hugo, solely because of simplicity and incredibly fast build speeds.

On that day, I was randomly searching the web and found a software called Wordpress. Setting up a webpage was a very fascinating idea to me at that time (it still is!). Hostinger.in used to provide a basic hosting service for free. As I was in college, I was eligible to get Github Education pack and with that came a free .me domain on Namecheap. My first domain name was theyashagarwal.me.

Even though I was on the verge of getting a fail grade in the Algorithms course, I could not resist my self from setting up this blog. I regret that I didn’t take a screenshot of my previous themes. Those screenshots might have been an excellent addition to this post.

Better late than never. Above is the screenshot of the website as it looks today.

I hope to keep saying this page my web home for years to come… 😄
