Hello World!

by Bossy Lee

This week, I rebuild the site you are on right now:

Leaving WordPress

This site was hosted on WordPress and I was paying S$60 annually for the site. It was all fun and good with the ability to change themes and having a full pledge CMS.

As I get older. I start to appreciate simplicity.

At its heart, web design should be about words. Words don't come after the design is done. Words are the beginning, the core, the focus. via This is a web page.

Since I write in plain text so there is no need for a complex CMS. Furthermore keeping the site plain allows you (the reader) to focus my the words. If my writings bring value, you will stay.

Hello 11ty

I decided to turn my site in to a static website. This site is generated with the 11ty static site generator.

Initially I was thinking of moving all my writings over. This can be easily done by using this WordPress Export library.

But I decided to start over.
Taking the opportunity to do a digital reboot and archived all my writings.

This site is still very much a work in progress. I’m re-evaluating how I exist online. I don’t know where this is all going, but I thought I may as well have this conversation out loud.
