So Long WordPress Posted on February 6th, 2015
This blog has been powered by WordPress for close to 5 years. However, as of this morning, it is powered by my own blogging platform, OpenPub. This was something that I had been meaning to do for awhile, but never had the time. WordPress is a monster of a legacy codebase. I found that as I wanted to add new features, I was forced to rely on third party plugins or digging into WordPress inner workings.
In the past five years, I've never once had a problem with WordPress. I can't say the same for some of the plugins. Rather than fighting with these plugins or learning how to develop in WordPress, I decided to write my own blogging platform.
I'm excited about the future of OpenPub. I’ll be adding more features as time goes on. I'm hoping that it will push me to learn and then to blog about what I learn.
