Switching to Hugo. A new blog layout

Welcome to the new blog layout.

After so many years of using a wordpress website, I have decided to switch to a static generated website using Hugo as the rendering engine. This should make the site a lot more faster and responsive as I don’t have to deal with the slowness and dependency of a database.

By using Hugo, I can simply create new pages/posts as markdown text files (and using my favourite editor - vim). The source files can be checked it into the git repository and then pushed up to a server.

It is quite an elegant solution - I should have done this years ago. :)

All of the old blog has been migrated across to the new format. Some of the old posts may not be relevant anymore, while other posts still contain useful information. I’m migrating it all over, warts and all, as this is my little corner of the internet and I want to preserve its history. :)

Hopefully this new format will make it easier for me to update my blog a little more often than I have in the past (I can’t believe I neglected 2018!)
