I’ve decided to relaunch my blog using WordPress, so I can focus more on content and less building here. I still want to eventually move back to something custom, but I may keep the WordPress backend and just build a frontend using Node.js. Or…who knows.
I feel like making the blog into a project, takes away time from actually blogging. It just took a few years for me to figure that out and has probably been at the expense of content I could have created instead.
My old blog is still online and I may tinker with code behind it from time to time. You can find it at https://clay.daviddyess.com
