Since I work with cloud infrastructure and DevOps on a daily basis, slow websites and servers are always haunting me. I would like my all my websites to load quickly, even for my personal blog. Although I love to work with Drupal’s powerful framework, it costs too much time to keep up with the maintenance and plugin update.
I decided to move my blog from Drupal to Jekyll, a static website generator. The reason behind the migration is that I want to focus more on the blog’s content instead of server maintenance. After the migration, the response time went from 3000ms down to 40ms, Now that is what I called improvement. A blog should only have one function - delivery of a message to the audience, nothing more.
One of the benefits of Jekyll is its importer; it allows you to import your old posts from different platform without any difficulties.
