It was time for a change. A post on how I simplefied my blog so its less about maintain a website and more about posting.
Initialy I toucht that a wordpress would be the quickest and easies seulution to share publications. I wasn't further from the truth. Wordpress is a platform with to many bells and wisels for me and i'd rather stay away from in the future. A few things that paticurly annoyed me
- the lack of a why to build custom themes in a user friendly why
- slow and sluggish.
- plugins on plugins on plugins...
Goals for the new blog
- Staticly generated
- Generated from markdown
- Easy to maintain
- Include a portfolio section
After Angular 1 2 and React I finally seteld on Vue a a favorite frontend, nuxt was my first choice but with some research I found Gridsome which was verly easy to setup on populate with content.
to be continued...
