I’ve started using Hugo for site generation for my blog. Too long, I’ve let it go to the weeds. Even though I’ve taken some good precautions on the host, I’ve failed to keep wordpress up-to-date. This has allowed script-kiddies and others with more time than quality of life to repurpose it. No longer!
With Hugo, I do site generation localy and upload static HTML. What does this mean for you? Faster page loads, and content that I actually produced. For me, it means easier sleep at night, and more trivial hosting. Win-win all around.
