New blog update !
I've just updated my blog entirely. Why and how
Why did I update my blog?
well, I created this blog in January of 2022, and since then I just wanted it to look better. The blog wasn't awful, it just did not look as professional and updated as I wanted. So I decided to change it completely.
To get good design and component consistency, I used NextUI which is a very nice component library. I also inspired the design of their page as it is very modern and pretty.
I suggest you to check out NextUI, very fast and comfortable to work with.

Design issues aside, the blog used only React Js which is not the best if you want to be indexed by a Google Bot. So that needed to be fixed too.
To fix that I just used NextJs which is perfect to get good SEO and performance in general. The old blog wasn't bad in performance, but it had room for improvement. Now I use ISR for the post pages. And siple static generation for the index page.
I also use some traditional data fetching in order to retrieve the likes on the posting page.
That's all, hope it was useful and inspiring for you.
