A date hasn’t been set, but I am planning to migrate my website from WordPress to Hugo soon, and to change domain names.
Not to worry, this domain will still be active for some months after the change occurs, and will redirect to the new site.
There are several reasons I am making this change, but these changes are not for everybody:
- I like working with Markdown
- Non-static features, such as comments, are more of a hassle for me to maintain than the benefits I’ve gained from them
- Updates and hosting are much lower cost for me if the site is static
- More opportunities to safely experiment with things like custom template designs
For most people, I would recommend WordPress in a heartbeat and currently maintain multiple WordPress sites for paid clients, but as a programmer I personally love coding my own work and prefer to keep costs down for personal projects.
