Blog Migration

Today I have successfully migrated my blog from Jekyll to Hugo! I got tired of dealing with Ruby and Gems. I found a blog post about combining GitHub Actions, Hugo and AWS S3 in order to host a static site. Now that it’s setup, it’s pretty nice! All I have to do is commit the new post to the main branch of the repo and everything else happens auto-magically!

Bye Bye, Wordpress

This blog has been pretty much dormant since 2012. One reason is that I just simply don’t have much time to invest in much of anything.
