Just got up from a deep, restful nap (as I have been awake since at least 4:00 AM this morning), and upon waking, I see I have an e-mail from [Mike](https://mpmilestogo.me), and he has a lot of good info on what to do in terms of getting started with git. He lead me to [this documentation](https://docs.github.com/en/github/importing-your-projects-to-github/importing-source-code-to-github/adding-an-existing-project-to-github-using-the-command-line), and this is just what I needed. Interestingly, there is a “point-and-click” version of Github mentioned in this documentation that takes the form of an app for desktop, which I didn’t know about, but I will stick to CLI because I need to know CLI stuff, anyway, and why bother with a completely separate app? I went through *that* song and dance with MySQL Workbench some time ago, and it was a nightmare! LOL!nnSo what I am going to do, is I am going to fire up a new “Nanode” (small server) on my Linode VPS, and I am going to do a Jekyll landing page/blog (which I successfully did as my *first* web dev project in late-2020 using nginx on a Nanode, and did so via the HP Chromebox (which has Linux apps, incl a Terminal) – good times, good times).nn**So, why a standalone blog/landing page? Why not use the Thanx Project as a testing ground?**nnQuick answer, **Thanx** is NOT a testing ground or something I learn things on/experiment with, or fool with – I can set up a new $5 per month Nanode and have all the liberty to fool/fuss/fuckup/and have fun with, and not have to worry about anything :)nnSo, I am going to jump in.nnGood coffee right now. And thanks again, Mike, for the tip/link/help – much appreciated! πŸ™‚
