Blog migration

Share on:

One of my intentions for 2018 was to relaunch my blog. For several years I have had a blog which I completely neglected. My previous post dates back to 2013 :-(

I decided to migrate my blog away from wordpress, where it was previously hosted. The reason behind this migration is twofold

  • Use the blog to learn additional technologies
  • Economics, I am confident that I am able to host my blog at a lower price point then possible with wordpress. The free wordpress plan is not an option since I am using my own domain for my blog.

I decided to migrate my blog to AWS S3 in combination with AWS Cloudfront and Hugo to generate the static content. The AWS S3 static website hosting functionality is used to store and serve the blog while Cloudfront is used as CDN.
