Blog Reorganisation


BlogI migrated my blogs back to WordPress. I started blogging with self-hosted WordPress blogs about 8 years ago. Some years ago I began using Disqus for comments and switched one blog to Octopress. I migrated both blogs to Pelican one year ago. Now I’m back at WordPress. While I was migrating the blogs I decided to merge my two blogs (English blog) and (German blog) to one blog at and redirected the URLs from my old blogs to this one. I plan to write here in English. Maybe I’ll write something in German here every now and then.

Why did I switch to WordPress again? Jeff Atwood said, a blog without comments is not a blog and not having a decent comments system was one of the biggest disadvantages when I used a static site generator. I didn’t want to save the comments on another system operated by a commercial company like Disqus.

I found a way to write my posts in Markdown on WordPress. Not being able to write in Markdown was the biggest issue I had with WordPress and the number one reason why I migrated my blog away from WordPress.

I wanted to improve the themes of my old blogs, but I didn’t have enough time to work on them. I guess it’s easier to use one of the available WordPress themes instead of creating my own theme.

But there are also some downsides: first I need to run server software which needs more server performance than a static site. There are solutions which can improve the situation.

Second I still don’t like the editor. There are blog editors out there. Maybe I’ll try out some of them.

Of course, I had a look at Ghost, but it wasn’t as mature as WordPress. It didn’t have a comment system, too. It looked very nice and promising, though.

  2. Over the course of 14 years, Michael Jordan created a legacy with Chicago that was laced with unimaginable highlights and gravity defying shots. On what would become the final shot of his storied career with Chicago, His Airness left us with a parting gift of everlasting basketball greatness. Playing for his sixth title, MJ’s squad was down one point with under ten seconds to go. With the game and season on the line Michael and the menacingly sleek Black/Varsity Red Air Jordan XIV created space, elevated and drilled the go ahead basket.

  3. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get
    that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a superb job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Chrome.
    Outstanding Blog!
