This is my first post on my new blog! How exciting! Creating this blog was an interesting process for me since I decided to use Gatsby for it. While I had created a gatsby plugin before, I hadn't actually built anything with gatsby. Starting this new blog was an opportunity to change that.
For my setup, I decided to start off with hosting the blog on GitHub pages. GitHub actions made sense as the perfect tool for continuous deployment of the site, which also happened to be the first time I am using GitHub actions.
After a couple of hours spent figuring out how to properly setup everything, I finally had the blog live and running at xkojimedia.github.io with a minimal template.
Here I would go over how I was able to setup everything.
