Seven months later, analyzing the cost of hosting a Hugo-based site on Microsoft Azure

In August 2019 I relaunched this site as a static site, generated using Hugo, and hosted on Azure. Moving to a static site brought quite a few benefits, from speed, ease of authoring new content, and simplicity. While it wasn’t a factor in the decision to move to a static site, cost has been another huge benefit. I’m saving over 97% per month by switching from a dynamic to a static site!

Add Search to Hugo Sites With Azure Search

A few months ago I re-launched my site on Hugo. At that time, my goal was simply to get off my own platform and onto Hugo.

Moved This Site to Hugo

Tuesday, August 13, 2019 4:02 PM

I started this site and blogging as a personal journal almost exactly 16 years ago today, in September 2003. Over the last 16 years, I’ve used three different open source engines to implement the site, starting with .Text, it’s successor SubText and then moved to Orchard CMS in 2013.
