I have been using Blot, a simple blogging platform with no interface, for quite some time now for running my blog. I am not alone when I say this, but am mighty impressed with how simple it is to post things on blot and maintain the overall site. They are just some files in Dropbox - that’s about it. So, it was pretty straightforward to customise the theme to my liking and to enable the support for IndieWeb principles.
For many, that’s too much of jargon right there in the title. So to bit of basics first. I would not go into the history or setup of this website. TL;DR this is site build with a static site generator Hugo themed by a custom port of Ghostwriter theme. In this post, I want to focus mainly on why and how of IndieWeb. Ever since I built this site, I had grown pretty determined to styling this exactly to my liking.
