As you may have seen from my previous post, I have been a user of both Jekyll and WordPress to serve my websites in the past. After some thought and consideration, I have decided to switch back to WordPress once again. Why you may ask? I simply enjoy the ability to have a full WYSIWYG editor when writing content. As much as I love free stuff, I really feel that Jekyll was lacking so much functionality. To be honest, I find the idea of writing blog posts in markdown and uploading via git a little tedious and time-consuming.
This is 2019 after all! With the appropriate security know-how and technical skills, we should not be afraid of using databases and backend technology. With the correct security features in place, WordPress blogs can be quite robust. I understand that hosting a WordPress blog costs money, but is $5 a month really that expensive? How much a GitHub Pro account per month?
