It has been too long since I’ve regularly written a blog post. What is really sad is if I look at my web traffic since I stoppe posting over the last three years:
So it is time to reverse the trend! I’m returning to my regular blogging schedule. I’m hoping to do more short, frequent blog posts.
One of the hurdles I faced was running my blog on WordPress. Don’t get me wrong, WordPress is still awesome, but it really isn’t how my workflow works these days. I much perfer to use the command line and git.
The other issue was keeping it up-to-date. Everytime I logged into the panel I felt a ping of guilt for not staying on top of updates. It felt like more maintanance than writing (at least for the little writing I was doing).
So I’ve converted my blog to a staticly generated site (I know, I’m like 3 years late to the cool-kid party with that). I’m using Hexo, which is really easy.
There are likely some bugs, and I really need to go back and fix some formatting on older posts. But the site is now live!
… and it is 2:50 am …
Ok, bed time for me!
