Migrating to Hugo
I never thought I would’ve had the motivation to do it, but here we are.
Since the beginning of this weekend, I’ve been taking advantage of my small, dispersed moments of free time to migrate my site to Hugo. It felt like a big task, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.
Why move to Hugo?
At first, I actually didn’t want to. I’m a boomer at heart in many ways; although I’ve tinkered with several static site generators in the past, I’ve just kinda stuck to plain HTML/CSS out of habit and comfiness. Originally, I was only looking for a more elegant and practical solution to generate and organize my blog posts, and wasn’t at all interested in moving my site to an actual framework. However, it quickly became apparent that I wasn’t going to be able to achieve robustness, simplicity, and stylistic uniformity unless I did something differently. I didn’t want to remove content from the site or ruin it thematically, so that left me only one choice: I had to migrate to some kind of framework. So finally, in part due to the ETERNAL and UNWAVERING clamoring of THIS MAN, I elected to move the site to Hugo (thank you, Max).
So far I’ve been enjoying it. Hopefully I won’t feel the need to do anything like this again for a long, long time.
