Another Website Update

Tuesday, December 31, 2019

I have had my personal website since early 2012. Since then, I have used a typical website hosting model and relied heavily on CMSes like WordPress to help me host things that I write.

Over time, I have realized I was ambitious with what I set out to do and didn’t actually keep up with the various sub-sites that I created. That led to many of those WP installations becoming unused. However, in the 7+ years since, across multiple website hosting provider migrations and services, it was a painful process to keep those sites running. So, recently, I archived those sub-sites.

When I archived all those sub-sites, I realized my website was pretty lean and mostly composed of static pages, except the CMS used for my micro blog. I also stumbled upon the world of static site generators at about the same time.

It took a while, but I found a solution that made me happy in Hugo for generating my micro blog, and moved away from complex hosting solutions to a GitHub-linked Netlify website. That brings us to now .

Look around, and let me know if you see anything out of the ordinary and let me know. Ah, I also route mail for my domain through ImprovMX now!
