Hello World

Front station Web3 station, get off at the back door, pay attention to traffic safety.

After some thought, I decided to officially move to xLog and embrace the Web3 ecosystem!


Previously, my blog was built on Halo and hosted on a pay-as-you-go server called Zeabur. Everything seemed fine until the end of the billing cycle when my blog suddenly couldn't be accessed. I checked the backend and realized that I had used up all the free quota...
But considering my current financial situation, I still can't afford the cost of a developer plan, and it will be like this for the long term. So I had to leave.

Straight Talk#

Here is a personal blogger who has been writing for two and a half years
I was also thinking about just explaining the reasons and saying a few words to end this somewhat watered-down article, but I felt it was a bit perfunctory. So let me tell a simple story instead.

Around the time when the pandemic broke out in 2020, while I was slacking off in class, I came across a tutorial on self-building a blog from someone on Coolapk. I followed the tutorial step by step and successfully set up my first blog using Typecho as the blogging system.

At first, I didn't know what to write, so I mainly focused on reposting articles and tinkering with themes. Later, I joined a group (I'm not sure what it's like now, I haven't been able to log in to QQ for a long time), and I learned things like how to register a domain name from there, and I also got to use a group member's server for a while.

Not long after, I came across Hexo, and coincidentally, my server was about to expire. I was worried about what to do next, so I tried it with the mentality of using GitHub for free. However, due to device limitations (I was still using a mobile phone at the time), this plan was soon abandoned.

After the end of the pandemic lockdown and the completion of the high school entrance examination, during that period, with the help of another group member, I rebuilt my blog, tinkered with Typecho, and wrote two or three tutorials. But even now, I can't bear to look at the quality of those articles (but I haven't deleted them, they are still on the lab, if you're interested, you can take a look).

After that, I entered high school, and due to the (almost) closed management of the school, my blog was in a state of long-term neglect, and even when I had time, I used it to tinker with other things.

During the period of the 2021 college entrance examination, I set up the aforementioned lab and used Vercel as the deployment method, which saved me a lot of trouble.

After that, I encountered a bottleneck. First, I didn't know what to write, and second, almost no one read what I wrote. Within a year, I only updated a few articles.

Then came the beginning of 2022, when the pandemic broke out again, but I only wrote a year-end summary for 2021 and put it in the lab. The Typecho site was only maintained regularly. After that, there was a six-month hiatus due to my studies, until the summer vacation came again.

In early July, due to maintenance costs (note: I had already changed servers three times by this time), the Typecho site officially closed after archiving on save the web.

The main site was rebuilt once, changing the engine from Typecho, which relies on the PHP environment, to the pure static Jekyll. Because the server was about to expire and I couldn't afford to renew it, I also deleted some incomplete and watered-down articles, planning to transform it into a technology site. (I estimate that I will change the framework again in the future) ---2022 My Year-End Summary - Move Forward | Mare_Infinitus
(Note: "main site" refers to the aforementioned Typecho site)

Then came my senior year of high school, and the school had a tight schedule. I was forced to temporarily give up writing blogs until the end of the college entrance examination.

After the college entrance examination, I once again changed my blogging system - not only because the main site was in disrepair, but also because I discovered the emerging serverless platform Zeabur.

I switched to the well-known Halo and wrote a short article with the same title as this one (I will move it here later and completely close the site).

But after using it for a while, the various problems with Halo and Zeabur became apparent, and I quickly gave up on it.

Hello, Web 3#

Unless something unexpected happens, this should be my final destination. I will regularly update various tutorials and share bits of life here. Your attention is also welcome.

If you want to know more about me, I have also written a short post elsewhere:

I don't know much about Web 3, but I am full of expectations for decentralized things like this, and I hope services like xLog will continue to improve.

In the near future, I will move the articles that I think I have written seriously in the lab to here, so you can pay a little attention.

Finally, thank you so much for reading this far! I also hope you can provide constructive suggestions for the article!
