I have been fed up with Wordpress for a while now. Having to upgrade the core plus an average of 4 plugins every time I went to blog was too much. And I am not even mentioning the security risk or the fact that some services flag wordpress installs as malicious websites…
So I started with that and moved my main website to use Twitter Bootstrap. While I was at it, I have refreshed both content and style to get:
- less chatty pages: especially the home page
- better page titles
- add a section on what projects I work on
And boom, I decided to go all in and also update my blog, importing them from Wordpress. I’ll give my feedback on both Twitter Bootstrap and moving a blog in a later post. But let me tell you, the actual content migration was the easy part. Realizing after the fact that a couple of 301 redirects were mandatory for Google to be happy was an interesting experience :)
Anyways, let me know what you think of the website and blog refresh.
