Goodbye Wordpress, Hello Hugo

I’ve been using Wordpressfor over 15 years. In fact, I started blogging before Wordpress existed, and even used b2 / cafelog, from which Wordpress was forked. But over the last couple of years as I’ve maintained three separate Wordpress sites (the first for paulcutler.org, then Stone Open, and later MLBPool2 (which is now using Pyramid instead), I’ve had constant crashes and memory issues. I don’t know if it’s because of the number of blog posts I have, but both my personal blog and Stone Open have tables corrupted and I have to go in and fix them whenever the site crashes.

A peek under the hood of the website revamp

Though things might be a bit prettier than they were, I’m going to take this opportunity to highlight the tools I used to give my website a makeover. Homepage For 5 years, I left up a “Coming Soon” webpage with some links to Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.
