Embracing Static[150 words]
I’ve been meaning to convert my blog to a static site for some time now, finally took the plunge and exported all my wp content to hugo.
Why? A few reasons
- Learning. Wanted to learn something new
- Efficiency. the whole point of static sites is to be less resource intensive. It’s not like I have such a huge volume of traffic that going static is going to save the planet, but it all helps.
- Security. No more worrying if WP is up to date.
I have been apparently keeping this blog for 10 years. A lot has happened in that time. I’ve changed jobs. I’ve had a bunch of kids. I don’t care much about things that used to make my blood boil, and things I barely thought about before keep me awake at night.
But one thing is constant: I’m still a geek, and I still love to code.
