Updating My Site to Use Nextjs

We're running Next.js on this blog now! Yey!

But why?

Lol, I just want an easy time, I'm building 47places using Next.js and so having both on them using Next.js means if I figure out how to do something on one site, the knowlegde is mappable 1:1 to the other site.

That aside, here's how I did it:

  1. Followed the official Next.js tutorial which walks you through building a blog.
  2. Followed this CSS tricks blogpost to add styled code blocks
  3. Deployed on Netlify as per usual
  4. Once the deploy worked, I modified the styling to make the site my own
