This site is being built in the open

I decided to start over on a twenty year old personal website. Things will definitely feel rough draft as I build up a world from scratch. You can follow along with the progress on the commits page.

🗺 Render the list only on the index

I’ve noticed in my writing about my writing, that it’s really hard to avoid loaded language. “Posts” and “entries” keep being typed, and deleted. “Homepage” vs “index”. These may be mundane decisions, with few implications, but I’m trying to defer them until I “have more information”. It’s a bit of a pedantic practice… but that pedantry is what I’m trying to explore in building from scratch.

The navigation is replaced with a “Back to the index” link. I could just call this “homepage” and be done with it… but again the deferring of naming things until I know what they are seems good, in theory.
