Introduced blog. Confused about Eleventy frontmatter for dates.

Today I created the very beginnings of this blog, which is generated with the static site generator 11ty. I started from scratch with the help of 11ty.Recipes. I am creating it in preparation for my upcoming batch at the Recurse Center, so that it will be easy to keep a record of my time there from the very start.

Date Woes

I got very muddled down with trying to manage the dates of these log entries in a pleasant way. I learned some about date filters and computed data, but got too confused to really even understand if what I want is possible.

Currently, my front matter looks like this:

date: 2023-10-12 14:00:00-7
day: "2023-10-12"
  title: "2023-10-12"

This should be possible, right?

Task Ideas

This section is for tasks I want on my radar, but haven't committed to yet.
