After a bit of fiddling, I’ve worked up a new personal website. I will keep my old site up and running, but will migrate all of the content from there over to here.
The primary motivation for this move is that jekyll is a much more intuitive system for managing a personal website+blog. I have always written my blog posts as plain text files, pasting them into the wordpress (‘.com’) page upon completion. I never learned wordpress (‘.org’) because it seemed unnecessary and excessive for my needs, and it seems much of the web development community agrees.
