I try to journal around New Years every year. I'm running late this year, but with good reason - I had top surgery in December and wasn't able to sit at my desk and comfortably write for a few weeks.

I thought that migrationg to a static site generator would be a good motivation to spend more time learning Rust ... but once I compiled Rust, and compiled Zola, everything else was just a matter of getting the templating to render well and fiddling with my build-publish workflow.
