It’s kind of funny how all those “.clubs” pop up, featuring lightweight sites: 1mb.club, 250kb.club, 520kb.club.

Without the favicon (a PNG version of my profile picture) my blog homepage is less than 5 KB (compressed). I should think about replacing the favicon with something else or optimize it a bit more, because it’s 21.5 KB compressed, more than 4 times as much as the site itself.

Nevertheless I’m pretty proud about my slim blog. It should load fast even on a throttled mobile data connection. I’m still pretty familiar about those conditions, until 4 years ago, I had a data plan with just 100 MB a month.

And yes, the web is pretty bloated nowadays.
