I'm trying to take more control of my data (i.e. stop using Google for everything), so I'm trying to figure out what to do.

Does anyone know of a checklist or an extensive guide to self-hosting and related things?

I've looked into a few services but it's confusing, there are so many things out there. Does anyone use NextCloud?

@mprv biggest tip is to take your time. I've got a mail server, this server, a nextcloud server, an rss server (miniflux) and more, and they're all great but it's been ~6 months of spacing them out and being willing to deal with each one (especially the mail server)

Yes, I definitely need to divide up the setup in small steps. I'll probably post a road map on my personal blog.
