Switched from Jekyll to WordPress .. Again ..

Yup, I did it again. I switched from Jekyll to WordPress, again.

Every now and then I get the urge to migrate my sites from WordPress to Jekyll. Most of the times I think it will be faster and more secure. And to a certain degree I think that is true. Because of the static pages Jekyll creates no database handling, on-the-fly page generation is being done and so on.

On the other hand, by switching to a static generator you loose some advantages, like being able to create a page in a WYSIWYG editor online and publish it real fast. And yes, I know there are editors for Jekyll or OctoPress that can do that, but in my mind that defies the purpose, at least from the security perspective. I mean, if you go on editing pages online, why not use a platform that is created just for that.

I’m not saying that this will be the last time I switch, but I loose a bit of information and images each time I switch one way or the other. Perhaps that’s a good thing, because I look at everything I posted in the past and ask myself ‘Is the internet a better place because of this post?’. And most of the times I have to say ‘No’.

So, keep an eye out for the blog, because things will be changing. And hopefully for the better.
