Within this post I’m going to be venturing into the world of Gatsby, creating a blog and then documenting about the blog within that (see why the post is called blogception 😅). I’m basically going to be writing the post whilst doing it so I’ll try and document my thoughts and struggles and they come and go. Lets begin…

First of all we are going to get the gatsby blog starter up and running locally.

$ npx gatsby new my-blog

I’m using npx here because I prefer not to have any node modules installed globally.
