Here is a list of tech I’ve used to create this site. This page will be updated regularly as my setup evolves. Have a question? DM me on Instagram or Twitter.

The philosophy here is to keep the site as good old blog. I’ll be avoiding using page builders like Elementor and only use the default WordPress editor to create advanced layouts. Avoiding page builders and using the fewest number of plugins available will help keep the blog loading quickly, which in turn will help it rank better in search engines.
