Typeset in Equity. Not only is this a great text face, but it also comes with one of the best licenses I’ve seen thus far—just one page long and allows you to use the font pretty much as you like (besides reselling it of course). In a world of stingy font licenses this is refreshing and welcome.
Built with Jekyll, a static site generator. If you’re proficient with the command line and basic system administration then I highly recommend Jekyll. The benefits of switching from a dynamic engine like WordPress to a static page generator—speed, security, simplicity—cannot be overstated.
Hosted on DigitalOcean. If you’d like to try DigitalOcean, you can use this link to get $10 credit. It’s an affiliate link, so I get credit if you use it to sign up. Thus far my experience with them has been great. DigitalOcean obviously caters for advanced users—server management is done through the command line—so if that’s not something you’re familiar with then this might not be for you.
