New Blog Platform

🕓Jan 4, 2020 · ☕1 min read

After many years of using WordPress, I decided to switch to a new blog platform.

Before WordPress, I built a website from scratch using a LAMP stack, and event built an administrative portal to manage posts. As fun and intuitive it was to learn and implement features and functionalities in blogs, I ended up spending a lot of time fixing and maintaining the site and less time on projects and new features.

Enter Hugo. Hugo is a popular static site generator and produces static web pages for the web server to handle instead of a server-side process to dynamically generate content. Interesting approach, and I figured I'll give this a run.
