I’ve seen on many other blogs people writing their monthly overviews of what happened, and I have been encouraged to try it out to reflect on what I have done and learned. However, since I don’t like to write short posts, I have decided to write seasonal posts instead of monthly ones.
I’ve been working on SummonerStats, an open source project I’ve been working on for a while now. It’s a web application that allows you to track your League of Legends summoner stats. I have dropped it countless times when I felt unmotivated, mainly because I struggled with CSS units and positioning, however, this time I learned about Flexbox which made everything easier and followed this comment about which units to use in each case which made the project more consistent.
The next problem to solve is to find good colors schemes for the website, I have been looking into Adobe Color for now.
I have rented for the first time a VPS, I chose RackNerd as I found a good deal on LowEndBox, I have been using it for a while to host Umami as it needs to be on 24/7 and I don’t have any complains about the service.
Changes on this site
I have been doing some small changes to this blog. I’ve added a Ko-Fi donation option which will usually be used to cover domain costs, self-hosting bills and related. In addition, I have removed the Google font and have opted for full local fonts. I have also removed the fading from left from the post list as it was starting to get a bit annoying.
