Another brush with Hugo and baty.net

I search my old blog (baty.net) nearly every day looking for some reference or topic. I stopped posting there earlier this year, and I often feel like I miss it.

I like the theme and I like static HTML controlled by version-controlled Markdown files. And I like Hugo, so last night I dusted it off and got things configured again. I even published a couple posts.

What I realized immediately is that even though Hugo is great, Blot offers nearly all the benefits in an easier-to-use package.

I ended up moving things around on baty.net so that the home page is now a giant list of every post going back to 2000. I have no intention to post there any time soon. 😔

I’m still down to (only!) three blogs.

That should do it, right?
