My name is Bob Brady (DigiBrady). I began by looking for a simple MEAN stack personal blogging platform that I could tinker with and learn by doing. Xiao Blog started simple and the features gradually expanded to what they are today.
Xiao (pronounced "shao") is the pinyin for the Chinese word meaning "small". It is used in the project name as a hat tip to all the Chinese web developers whose open source code has helped me on my MEAN stack journey. By documenting and sharing this code, I hope to help you along with your journey too.
