# Blog
Minimal boilerplate blogging. All you need is one boilerplate JavaScript filethat has 2 lines of code:
```jsimport blog from "https://deno.land/x/blog/blog.tsx";
## Getting started
To initialize your own blog you can run following script:
```shellsession$ deno run https://deno.land/x/blog/init.ts ./directory/for/blog/```
_This command will setup a blog with a "Hello world" post so you can startwriting right away._
Start local server with live reload:
```shellsession$ deno task dev```
To ensure the best development experience, make sure to follow[Set up your environment](https://deno.land/manual/getting_started/setup_your_environment)from the Deno Manual.
## Configuration
You can customize your blog as follows:
```jsimport blog, { ga, redirects } from "https://deno.land/x/blog/blog.tsx";
blog({ author: "Dino", title: "My Blog", description: "The blog description.", avatar: "avatar.png", avatarClass: "rounded-full", links: [ { title: "Email", url: "mailto:bot@deno.com" }, { title: "GitHub", url: "https://github.com/denobot" }, { title: "Twitter", url: "https://twitter.com/denobot" }, ], middlewares: [ ga("UA-XXXXXXXX-X"), redirects({ "/foo": "/my_post", // you can skip leading slashes too "bar": "my_post2", }), ],});```
## Customize the header and footer
By default, we render the header and footer with builtin template using the blogsettings. You can customize them as follows:
```jsx/** @jsx h */
import blog, { h } from "https://deno.land/x/blog/blog.tsx";
blog({ title: "My Blog", header: <header>Your custom header</header>, footer: <footer>Your custom footer</footer>,});```
## Hosting with Deno Deploy
## Self hosting
You can also self-host the blog, in such case run:
```shellsession$ deno task serve```
