It’s been a long time then I used WordPress for my personal blog and other projects. I learned a lot of WordPress ecosistem and, at the begginig, I liked the simplicity of their CMS. But, later, it started to come with very complex features in their releases from year to year which are not related for a simple blog page and I, at least, will never use them. Besides this, there are other concerns, like:
- every code usually comes with bugs/exploits, and is my responsibility to maintain the host secure and I have no time for this headache.
- spam spam spam… a lot of blog spam that you need a decent hosting solution - it’s money down the drain for me
After that I started looking on site generators which seems to solve a lot of my problems and also there is a lot of options to host my site on (github/gitlab/cloudflare/docker+nginx)
So I started digging deeper and I chose to play and use hugo
