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.
This is a visual technique you can use to prioritise tasks when faced with competing demands from customers and your employer.
I’m working on a project for a UK public sector site that involves analysing lots of legacy web content. The work also involves restructuring the site with a new, straightforward, navigation. Findability and interesting, relevant content are key. In parallel, I need to improve the site’s performance in search engine results.
