New Theme: Back to Basics

by Aaron Crowder on in Site Updates

Things look a little — ahem — different around here, don’t they? I think if you look carefully you’ll notice a few things have changed 😅 I recently decided that I wanted to change up my personal site and build from a solid foundation. There wasn’t anything wrong with my old theme. Far from it! It worked really well. I just wanted to have something that was purpose built for what I wanted.


(The Long Road) Back to Hugo

by Aaron Crowder on in Site Updates hugo

Once upon a time there was a full-stack software developer who could NOT stop redoing his personal Website. I think this might be the 50th or 60th time I’ve done it in the last 10ish years that I’ve owned this domain. I have used all sorts of content management systems (even wrote a couple of my own) and static site generators. WordPress, OctoberCMS, Pelican, Hugo, etc. But I keep coming back to Hugo.
