Hugo

· 4 minute read

Learning a blogging platform outside the Wordpress domain has been on my mind for a while. I’ve been working with Wordpress sites as an author, editor or general maintenance man, for ten years now and I felt it was time to expand my horizons. I researched static site generators and settled on Hugo as a new platform to learn. Aside from learning a new technology, another reason for moving the blog to a static site generator is that my Wordpress sites just seem so slow these days, despite optimising and aggressively caching where I can.
