I miss my static website - so expressive! 😭
WordPress does make publishing and managing posts easier, and is easier on my time and mental health -- both prime reasons I moved. That's still true.
But I miss my static website. 😭
@ru Now you have to do both: yourwebsite[.]com/blog and static.yourwebsite[.]com/blog 🙃 .
@ru I've considered moving to static so many times but just haven't found a solution that works for me. (just moved back to WordPress from Medium, but I really don't like the Gutenberg editor)
@krisfreedain Right? It's such an investment, and somehow still an inconvenience?
I like the Gutenberg editor though, and I guess I'm an odd one there. 😄 Really wish they'd address its accessibility. 😔
@ru ya, I really want to like it, but it just feels so cumbersome to me. I'd love to find a static site generator, WYSIWYG editor, Markdown files, with a mobile app. Massive ask that I just haven't found yet.
@ru is there a middle ground? A simple static site running NetlifyCMS maybe? Or a custom Wordpress theme?
@thumb Eleventy. 😅
@ru Oh yeah 😬. I recall it now.
We, quite simply, are a safe space. A larger goal is to become a place for you and your friends to feel comfortable not just showing your uber positive highlight reel, but also talk about personal, often difficult, content that other platforms tend to penalize.
