I made the switch over to Hugo a short while and love the fast builds. You can read all about me ‘crushing’ on it in my What I Learned using Hugo post.

This ended up killing a lot of my backlinks, but that’s ok. I ended up settling on using Markdown to write my posts (love it) and a static CMS generator. Originally I used Pelican and it was pretty good.
It’s no secret that I’ve switched CMS’s so many times that it makes my head and my reader’s heads spin. Take a look at my CMS tag and you’ll see my struggles with Wordpress, Expression Engine, Text Pattern, and Blot.
