Test, test, are we live?

Welcome to Zig NEWS!

This is a self-hosted instance of Forem (the same CMS used by dev.to) managed by yours truly. The idea is that if you want to create written content about Zig, this instance can help you with promoting it without any extra effort on your part.

I strongly believe that having your own blog (aka owning your own content) is largely preferable to giving up the fruit of your work to someone else by posting it on their platform, but I also know that there are a lot of people who maybe wouldn't mind writing about Zig occasionally, but who are also not interested in doing all the work necessary to set up their own thing.
This is what Zig NEWS is for.

Hopefully Zig NEWS can become a fun way of sharing parts of your Zig jurney with other Ziguanas.

PS
Check out the FAQs.

Great idea Loris - I think (once again), you have perfectly read the mood of a lot of devs, and put this up right at the right time.

Thank you

Not necessarily planning on doing it, but what are your thoughts on cross-posting here and on a personal blog (with a cross-link at the top)?

Feel free to do whatever you prefer. Forem has support for setting a "Canonical URL" for each post so that it's properly marked also for search engines etc.

Hey @kristoff make sure to keep this Forem instance up-to-date. We're making improvements and you should seek to regularly update it.

Otherwise things continue to look great!
