S’more Scout

Built in 2020  ·  Visit website

After a few years of building websites for enterprise B2B software companies, I was looking to do something a little different.

S'more Scout is an art project in honor of one of my favorite indulgences. It is also my first foray into B2C and niche blogging.

Not to skimp on firsts for this project, I also learned how to build a full website system with Gatsby. After wrapping my head around how Gatsby works, I've found it to be an excellent platform to work with. It has also been a great introduction to the React library and GraphQL.

I aim to make all of the content as authentic as possible, all the way down to my own custom photography of completed recipes and reviewed products.

I will continue for at least the next year to sample s'mores recipes and treats with my family and post honest reviews. It's all for fun.
