Why I Moved To Hugo For My Blog

You might have noticed my blog's had a bit of spring clean. The new site is powered by a static site generator called Hugo, which is written in the loveable Go language. I also finally moved off of shared hosting (don't ask...) to a Digital Ocean server which also provides me a host of other freedoms.

My previous site was a custom site I wrote using PHP + MySQL over the years. It worked well as a platform for learning and functionality it worked reasonably well also. However for the following reasons I knew this needed to end:

So yeah, that's pretty much the major reasons. I hope you like the new makeover, and I'll be looking to be making some (more interesting) blog posts soon.
