After several years of telling myself that I’d update my website both to look more professional and to be easier to update, I have finally done it. Welcome!
This new website uses the static site generator Hugo, which has many powerful features that I will never need (but if I ever want to publish an RSS feed, I can do it!). However, it is fast and the structure and workflow make more sense to me than other generators I have used, so I will stick with it. The old site was also built with Hugo, but there were a few things that made it annoying to update, namely: 1) the lack of a CMS (which made it difficult to publish) and, further, 2) it was self-hosted on a cloud server, so any updates (including articles) had to be deployed manually.
To make it look professional, I have lightly customized the theme
hugo-resume, which is based on the Start Bootstrap - Resume theme. Importantly,
hugo-resume includes an easy-to-use CMS, Netlify CMS, which should make it much easier for me to write new posts. I tell myself that the reason I never published to my old site is because I needed to be at my computer to write new posts, and having a CMS means I can write from anything (or anywhere) with an internet connection.
