This blog has seen quite a lot of technical changes since it first launched in 2006. It first run on WordPress.com, I then migrated it to a homemade Django app, then years later into Gridsome app, and now we’re back to (this time self-hosted) WordPress.
Problem with custom blog engines is that they suck. They’re fine for that “12 minute blog” demo but not too much past that. My Gridsome blog deteriorated in few months to a state where I couldn’t get the development site running at all (and I’m an experienced developer) so I decided that it was time to find something that would allow me to write more. So here we are, again, 16 years later.
