What I have used, how did I set up this blog?

  • Choosing the name – I live in Australia, I love koalas, sqlkoala.com was free, so this one was sorted.
  • Technology – I know that these days cloud services like Wix are probably the easiest way with quite a little monthly fee. I feel like once you need anything advanced you have to upgrade your subscription. I also had some mild experience with WordPress and gives me more control about any customisation and adjustments. So it’s self-hosted WordPress.
  • Design – just picked a theme. I tried to create a header but was waste of time, probably do not have enough patience and also lack the artistic feeling. At the end I just used background colour and put a logo on top of it. The logo story is quite interesting – AI have created it – thanks to DALL-E 2
