R-Ladies Sydney (@RLadiesSydney; 166): BIG thanks to @jfsloane and @TehillaOst for holding our hands so gently as they guided us through how to set a blogdown website last night. Blogdown, hugo, github, netlify… we covered a lot!

Donald Williams (@wdonald_1985; 20): @vishal_katti @rstatstweet I recently switched from blogdown and I guess hugo to distill, based on recommendations I got on Twitter. I am very happy I did. Here is my 3 day progress >

Raphaël Simon (@RplSmn; 20): This is my 6th attempt at making my own website with Hugo/blogdown and other rmarkdown tech. I always got lazy at the last step: from exempleSite to my own. But this time I might make it, thanks @apreshill for #hugo-apero, it’s very engaging!

Mattan S. Ben-Shachar (@mattansb; 10): @wdonald_1985 For a site it has just enough! For a blog I’d still stick to blogdown

Houston H. 💉💉🎉 Haynes (@h3techdev; 0/1): @MARKFORMULA1 @red___square @Aaronontheweb I write a blog. I use #RStats blogdown and @GoHugoIO. But there was a day where it was “Wordpress” or it’s wrong.
