I’m currently blogging using Pelican as my static site generator (here’s a link). I started with that because it seemed like the cool thing to do – write your own blog, control everything, and write posts in plain text, or markdown.
But as time went by, and I wrote more and more, I got annoyed with the constant need to maintain and manage Pelican. I start getting bored, tinkering its internals. What’s more, it started to take longer to post new entries. Pelican generate the entire site, every time a post is edited. So as I’ve accumulated posts, making changes and seeing their results became a long process. With 26 posts now, it takes almost 2 minutes to a see a change I made in the development site.
So I want to give WP a try. Don’t know if I’ll like it, and if I’ll be ok with loosing some of my control. But who knows…
That’s it for a test page, right…?
