I hadn’t updated my blog in a while because it was a terribly painful process and if I made even the slightest mistake I would have to go through the entire thing again and then wait for it to build. Then it would sometimes build and sometimes not build. Very very frustrating.

Enter: Netlify

I thought I’d give it a try and wow I was really impressed. I created a new repository with my theme & posts, pointed my new Netlify account at it, told it it was rendered with Hugo, registered a new domain, and was off and running with SSL in about ten minutes.

Exceptionally cool.
