New Site 🎉Posted on 29 Nov 2013
Having read about how static sites are way more lightweight and the codebase can be quite minimalistic, they sounded right up my alley.
So, I basically rewrote the entire site in static HTML, using Jekyll, and I ditched the very bloated Wordpress as a my blogging backend—all of which I have to say was a learning experience, but it only took me a few days to get the hang of.
Another benefit of becoming static, is that I can host my site on an Amazon S3 bucket (which also conveniently has a Ruby gem which I can use to deploy to S3 immediately).
I’ll have to now work on the responsive design aspects and try out some of these trendy CSS preprocessors, like SASS.
