Reading List: April 29 - May 6

I think I'm going to start this series of entries again. Trying to continue to share the interesting articles and stories I've read over the course of the week.

Switching Platforms

I've been using Jekyll to run this blog for the better part of the last six years. But recently, I've been giving serious consideration to switching to Gatsby or Next.js.

Some Small Site Updates

Over the course of the last couple weeks, I've made some small improvements to my site. None of them are particularly huge, but I like the end result.

Another Redesign

As you can tell, I've decided to give my blog a little bit of a facelift.

Redesigned Again

Over the course of the last several months, I’ve been busy building out my website utilizing Jekyll instead of Wordpress. It’s not my first time moving away from Wordpress, but I think it will end up being permanent.

The Redesign

This has been in the works for some time now.

Back with Wordpress

At the end of January I decided to make the switch to the Ghost blogging platform. I had heard good things about it and decided to move over to it. Well, this past week I decided I wanted to expand a bit more with how I blog and realized that Ghost really wasn't going to work for what I needed. Given that and my limited knowledge of node.js, I decided that I'd be better served moving back to WordPress as my platform since I am familiar with PHP and its inner workings.

My Thoughts on Ghost so Far

Two weeks ago, I decided to make the switch from WordPress to Ghost as my blogging platform. For me it was a figuratively big jump as I have been using WordPress for years and hadn't really thought of switching to any other platform.

Now Running on Ghost

Despite my initial skepticism about switching over to Ghost as my blogging platform, I still pushed ahead and made my blog theme for Ghost. As you can tell, the look isn't all that different from it's previous look, but the backend is completely different.

Making a Switch to Ghost?

Several months ago, when Ghost was first released to the public, I took a look at it and made a note to give it a look-see. Over the past week, I finally got it running on my dev server playing nicely with my Apache setup. So far I've been playing around with it and am contemplating whether I want to switch my blog platform over to it from WordPress, which is what I currently use.
