Why by Hand?

April 9, 2024 • Louie Mantia

I encourage making websites by hand for two reasons:

  1. To learn what a website—at its minimum—really is.
  2. To be independent from any system or service.

Will you make mistakes? Sure. Will it be frustrating? Sure. But hand-writing my site is so rewarding. I’m able to post and edit so frequently because I enjoy the process.

When people say I should do things differently, I think about how quickly and easily I post, and I honestly can’t see how it could be any better.
