My landing page website was originally hosted on flavors.me but that got shut down and all my web presence was broken for a few weeks (!!).
I chose Hugo because it has nice minimal themes and was reasonably easy to set up and deploy. I had some issues with using custom themes and ended up just copying the folder to my directory rather than dealing with submodules which were a major headache.
I’ve found myself avoiding blogging because I didn’t like my blog layout, how
much overhead there was for creating a new pelican page (now I do
blog/migrate-to-hugo.md and that creates the new post with the correct date,
draft: true) and website so I’m hoping that an easier deploy
process will encourage me to blog more.
