Several things happened in the past a couple years so I moved this blog site to static, some major issues lead to this change:
- Google is no longer my preferred service provider, so I’m moving away from AdSense and Analytics
- I’m no longer actively writing so I don’t expect people interact with me through this site
- Google is going to stop G Suite legacy so I assume they will stop GCE free tier soon, which I’m running this site at
For now I have an VM running Ubuntu with WordPress installed, I launch the VM whenever I want to write something, then using Simply Static to generate pure static pages then copy to an Nginx server. The Nginx is still running on GCE but since everything’s static, I can easily port it to anywhere cheap whenever needed.
I’ve disabled most dynamic features during this process, like search, comment, AdSense, Analytics, etc. There may be some features that are currently broken, I will fix them whenever I know.
