A new year, a new coat of paint

February 25, 2019

This past week I’ve experimented a bit with getting up a new version of the site.

Last year my goal was simple - write (well write a lot). Unfortunately things didn’t work out as planned.

So… After spending quite a bit of time tinkering, I decided why not slap some new paint on and make it just a bit easier to write.

If anything, next year there will be a whole lot less of work to do.

How do things work now?

I’ve switched over to hugo. I was hoping to try out Gatsby but the setup seemed a bit much for me.

Previously I was only using middleman, but with longer and longer build times - I thought it would be good to try something new.

Luckily there was a great starter theme, that was easy to build on.
