Converted my weblog from WordPress to a Pelican (a static site generator), recently. Did a bit of clean up today. The original conversion (several weeks ago) was very rough. Better ... but still needs work.

Several years back I bet on WordPress as an intermediate solution. Looking at the implementation, I never trusted WordPress to be secure ... and it was not. (Never put your code into the web-addressible / writable space.) A weblog is not exactly mission-critical. With offline backups, it was good enough.

Still, the poor performance and regular corruption was an annoyance. The static weblog generators improved over time. Time to move over.

Apologies for any (very likely) broken bits.
