Hello everyone,

I wrote a first draft of a manual that explains how to run a Jekyll blog
over a hidden service.

*Disclaimer: The following manual is a draft and may contain severe
problems harming your privacy! Do not rely on anything in the manual yet!*



The intended audience are bloggers who can handle a terminal window but
who don't know the typical pitfalls of securely setting up a web server
over a hidden service.

The approach taken in the manual is to describe how to assemble existing
software for a simple hidden blog in as few steps as possible.

Are there any obvious security problems with the described setup?

Is it possible to simplify parts of the manual even more?

Does anyone want to work on a Jekyll layout to make the manual prettier?

Feedback much appreciated!  Thanks!

All the best,
