I got tired of wrestling with Hugo and the static site generators. At some point, when you’re too old and have too much to do, you just punt to what worked in the past. WordPress is still slow, clunky, and the wordpress.com app is just incredibly lethargic.
But I’m trying to move to an iPad on iOS 11 as much as possible and I just needed something that would work. I was able to hook things up over git with Lambda (see earlier post). Sometimes, though, things would just break for no reason at all. I don’t know why. I also don’t know why wordpress.com and the Dreamhost MySQL backends are just slow as hell.
If I had the money I’d move my WordPress sites out to AWS and use CloudFront. But I just don’t have that kind of cash, sadly, so I’ll keep them on Dreamhost for now.
Sorry about the shifting. If anyone is still around and reading this blog, please speak up and say hello.
