Do you have a personal website?

I am finally getting around to creating a full personal site before I launch a few side projects and I am curious what other makers have come up with. I am most interested in creative takes on personal branding and storytelling. Feel free to share links to your own! Qs: If you have a site, has it been useful? How often do you update it or add content? Link the best personal site or blog (not Medium-based) you can think of, doesn't have to be in tech.
Simple 'about me/contact' page
Portfolio
Full blog
No, but plan to make one

If you are thinking of creating a personal site, I strongly suggest you check out Hugo. Static websites FTW! You can actually host a Hugo website for free on Netlify.

@radu_ciurca 100% agreed, I love static sites. I am making my profile as a custom theme on Hugo/Netlify and editing articles through Forestry.io. I don't think enough people understand how nice Hugo is to work with!

@tylerlastovich it's nice because it's pretty easy to work with as well. I made my website and I can't call myself a programming, I know the basics, so I guess this says a lot about it.

I use Carrd for mine and it's helpful for when I'm doing a speaking gig or writing a guest blog as folks can pull my bio from it. I think it gives people helpful context on what I do, too.

I currently use Wordpress. But want to switch to Webflow soon. I had an entire creative vision which is hard with the current theme I have. https://nayamoss.com

@nayamoss Looks pretty good already. I hear ya on the theme limitations though. I am making quite an involved full theme from scratch for mine. I moved over to Webflow for a few projects this last fall and loved it... for about 4 months. It has its own share of annoying limitations that make me hesitant to recommend it (although the visual editor is still amazing). I have been really enjoying the simplicity, full-control, and straight-forward nature of Hugo. If you are comfortable coding give it a serious look! PS: We have oddly similar backstories. Hello from another creative tech person, 3x founder, and traveler looking to move to Romania for a bit haha!
