Bye bye Wordpress. Hello GitHub Pages!

I just decided to move my blogging platform away from the tried-and-true Wordpress to GitHub.

Why?

Well, for a few reasons.

  • I can write posts in Markdown
  • I don’t have to worry about zero-day Wordpress vulnerabilities
  • Version tracking of blog posts!
  • Why not?

It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be.

I followed this guide, which was really helpful in showing how to export comments, move them to Disqus, etc.

Now I’m just waiting for the DNS changes to take place, and it’ll be all done (apart from learning the way Jekyll works!)
