I just finished something that has been on my to do list for a long while.

The results are right in front of you.

I just redesigned this site and migrated from Wordpress to a static site generated by Jekyll.

Eight years ago, when I started blogging, I wanted to get rolling quickly. I signed up for a free Wordpress account, picked a theme that seemed okay, and went from there.

I never particularly liked the way the site looked but it was acceptable enough as I focused on other things.

Now I feel much happier about the site, both the result and the process that led to the result. I’ve gotten a chance to dig into HTML and CSS which I have not done for a long time. I’ve also had the chance to learn enough about Jekyll to get up and running.

I may curse my decision sometime in the future when I realize something I want to do is going to take a lot of time that I’d rather not spend.

But for today, I’m going to enjoy the small victory of completing something I’ve been wanting to do for a long while. •
