I just got Hexo up and running and it seems to work smoothly. I was pretty excited to find a blog based on node.js and coming from a world of Wordpress it was amusing that people actually ported Wordpress themes to Hexo. Normally I would have preferred a much more minimalistic skin, but as I hope to post about outdoors stuff too, I figured I could use some color in my theme.
I’ll admit it. I’m not someone who usually adopts software if there isn’t a great community supporting it. As Hexo‘s community is mostly Chinese (?) it could be hard to get English-language help, but configuring Hexo was easy and just a little bit of command line stuff. Editing is easy, too. And I couldn’t really find a reason not to go for it!
Perhaps not, but the further I get in my career the more important it gets to have something that can be googled. Plus: I like writing as much about code and the things I do as I do making things. Creativity needs to be let out for both processes.
I guess I will eventually, it’d be gezellig.
Wait, that’s still around?
