So I moved my site to Jekyll and Github Pages.
The reason was that I wanted to get rid of my hosted VPS solution which I didn’t use at all. I had great plans of making lots of small websites, but that never really planned out.
I also wanted to get rid of the 500ms page loads of Wordpress (yes, I’m sure you can make that better). All I need for my blog is a static website. I plan to do comments with Disqus.
I looked briefly at other static site generators, but the fact that Jekyll comes free with
git push-ing your entire folder is lovely) and that for your personal site you don’t
gh-pages branch all made it a relative easy candidate to pick.
