Oh boy. It’s been a long time. Excuses follow, but they’re not really that valid.
What took so long?
Truthfully, it all came down to the website. Two years ago, nah, three years ago, when the last contributions were made to this site, I wasn’t really happy with it. It was built with WordPress, a fine website platform. But there are things about WP that really annoy me. I won’t get into that now but I knew back then that I wanted to migrate away from WP.
It took me a year or two to figure out how I wanted to build this site, then another year or so to get around to doing it. Over the past six or eight weeks I build the site and migrated over all of the content. No one will likely notice because its been so long since it was updated. Anyway, this new site is built with Hugo, and I really like the platform. There are still a lot of tweaks to be implemented, but a couple of days ago I decided the update was better than the old site so I went live with it.
And so, what’s been happening?
All this, along with other things I’ve done and plan to do, should give me a lot to write about over the next few months. There is more to come.
While I was going through and converting the old posts on this site over to the new format, I saw that I had five or six post drafts that I had started and never published over the past couple of years. All of these were scrapped for some reason or another. My goal is to produce exciting and engaging content going forward. I’d like to show new projects (and some old ones) in a new way. I’ve got some new processes in the shop, it’s time for some new processes on the blog as well.
