Keeping even a simple web site up to date is work, and anything we can do to reduce the time required is a good thing. On this site, I’ve been carrying old posts going back to 2005, which is just plain silly.
In the interest of simplifying things, I made a couple decisions:
- All the old posts are archived as flat html; and
- FunnyMonkey.com is now running on WordPress.
I’ve used WordPress for a range of things over the years, and it’s a solid foundation. I’d be lying if I said I loved it, but I don’t hate it, and it doesn’t fill me with revulsion. In an ideal world, I’d be running something using flat files and markdown, and I’ll probably move in that directtion sooner rather than later, but until then, WordPress is a decent option.
