Stylized pullet head logoPullets Forever


I decided to start bloggin’ again, which might have been an excuse to evaluate the state of Static Site Generators, tooling that I worked with at Nest on at Apple. It was more than a bunch of Perl scripts, honest.

So that means I need to update my tooling to something I like. I have absolutely spent more time converting what little I have of a blog from platform to platform, but, if I’m to get serious about bloggin’ again, I need something both easy to use, and highly flexible to scratch my semantic HTML itch.

For building the site I settled on 11ty for the following reasons:

Hosting was another issue to solve, I had been using GitLab pages, which is great for basic sites, but static web hosts should support everything GitLab does plus headers for security. I was in the process of moving off of Google Domains (RIP) to CloudFlare and evaluated their Pages product. Everything I needed and behind a service I was already using. Sold! You now get my free business.

Anyways, no idea where this is going, but expect new posts every once in a while, I still have a bunch to clean up around here.
