Hmm…where to start. This tech blog is powered by WordPress now. The end!
It was an easy choice to migrate from Drupal to WordPress. I was starting to hate running updates on Drupal. I was using Composer to run updates and from time to time it would just completely mess up the site. There was that one time that I had to recovery from backup because it was that bad. A2hosting has awesome support for Drupal, but even better support for WordPress so after multiple Drupal update attempts, I finally said goodbye to Drupal and hello to WordPress.
My other blog, www.adventuresofbl.com, is already running on WordPress so it made the decision even easier. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate Drupal, I just hate running Drupal updates. I’ve been a Drupal fan since Drupal 6 and having worked with it at the beginning of my software dev career. The likelihood of me ever going back to Drupal or spinning up a Drupal site for myself or anyone is probably close to 0%. It’s just not worth the time.
You’ll also notice a new site design! When I migrated over to WordPress, I decided to grab a template. There are tons and tons of templates out there for WordPress and with such limited time nowadays, I just couldn’t justify sitting around for hours trying to figure out how to create my own. I’m not much of a design person anyways so I like this tech blog looking minimal as much as possible.
It’s 2022! New job too. Still working remote. 8-month baby too. Life’s been a little crazy, but it’s been great. Hope everything has been well with you too, reader!
