Welcome to Nelly Eggsy!

Hello, I'm Nelly Eggsy, your new favorite content creator. Explore my thoughts, stories, and ideas!

Welcome to Nelly Eggsy!

Hello and welcome to Nelly Eggsy. As you can see, this a brand-new website.

I have been creating niche gaming websites and forum-based online communities for years. However, I never made a site about me.

Nelly Eggsy is all about me. I will use this platform to share my thoughts, stories, ideas, and random content. It will be my window to the internet!

Creating a website from scratch is not an easy task. Luckily for me, I have open-source resources and tools at my disposal to help me establish my online presence. Most importantly, I have the support of my family and friends.

I'll keep things short of telling you a bit about my brand-new site. 🙂

Brand Identity

I commissioned an original logo from my long-time acquaintance and graphic designer, José Casal, who helped me develop the official typography and colors for Nelly Eggsy. I believe José did a great job with our branding kit.

Look and feel

Nelly Eggsy uses a modern open-source publishing platform as well as an open-source discussion platform. These platforms are made possible by an incredible community of open source contributors from around the net who graciously volunteer their time and code to the project. Without the open-source community, nothing which we do would be possible. We are forever indebted to the people who selflessly share with the open-source community. Thank you all so much for being super awesome!

A modern content management system

After researching a long time for a content management system (CMS) platform, I chose to use Ghost.

Ghost's target audience is ambitious, professional publishers who actively want to build a business around their content. That's who it works best! That is the reason why we are using it. Feel free to check out our posts about Ghost!

A forum system for civilized discourse

I am also happy to announce that Discourse powers our new forum.

I hope you enjoy my site and what I have to offer. Happy browsing!
