*tap* *tap* is this thing on? So after a great deal of internal debate, I ditched server-side LAMP based blogging software and migrated to a statically generated system, namely Hugo. Ultimately the decision came down to maintenance. I was creating content at a lower rate than Wordpress (and its plugins/themes/etc.) required updates. Nevermind the need to keep the server software (Apache, MySQL, PHP) secure and updated as well. Even though the migration was painful and the new system can be restricting, I’m glad I did it.
