Hugo Logo

I thought I might start fresh with a new website and blog. I have previously used Jekyll with GitHub Pages to build my online résumé, but it never really seemed like exactly what I wanted so I’ve been on the lookout for the new and different. I wanted something lightweight, that would interest me technically and to use something like Markdown. My preference for Markdown was simply to allow for a focus on the writing with less direct worry about the styling of text on a day-to-day basis. After a bit of research, I decided to try using Hugo, which seemed to fit all of my criteria.

Hugo gives me the opportunity to spend a bit of time learning Go and, so far, I am fairly pleased with the templating functionality. I’ve got a lot to learn, but luckily no one will be viewing this post for some time (not even Google’s crawler).
