I migrated to Hugo from Wordpress, and in that process I have been trying to find ways to optimize the editing, building and hosting systems that I use for this website.
I recently decided to switch from Wordpress to a Static Site. This post is a review of what I finally ended up with for the most simple solution for my site. I had a few guiding principles as I worked through the process of setting this up.
- Free or Cheap static site hosting
- As few moving parts and systems as possible
- Easy to create or update content from desktop or mobile
- Supports SSL (HTTPS) for my domain
Off to Spain for the Fire and Evacuation Modeling Technical Conference. I’ve really been looking forward to this event and to be able to bring Carrie along with me. Off we go!
