Having seen a number of HNers personal websites, they could absolutely stand to benefit from a simple article like this. Many of them are more interested in talking about how minimal their static site generator is, rather than whether the content on said site is readable or even mobile friendly.

These were my sentiments exactly while exploring other peoples personal websites before making mine! Thank you.

It's one reason why I liked write.as a lot and started writing some stuff on there. Their CSS is really nice and simple.

Thanks for this clear example of an offhanded dismissal.
