Goodbye WordPress, Hello Gatsby!
Not for good, but for this site. WordPress has a lot of great features about it. We still use it over at Mvestor Media for EVERY single project that we take on. But WordPress isn’t without its quirks. It’s not the right tool for every job. I’ll save the why for another post.
No More Comments or Tracking
The theme I picked has a Disqus integration…but I disabled it.
Why? I find conversations regarding articles more meaningful and productive over Twitter, rather than one’s arbitrary comment system. Bonus: it keeps the site fast.
Also, there is no tracking of any kind on this site, other than whatever Netlify collects as a static site server.
Progressive Web App Ready
Everything is going to be pre-rendered, so this site will load extremely quickly. I’ll shoot for 100/100 in Lighthouse/PageSpeed Insights.
Dark Mode Available
What else is there to say?
See you soon, with more content!
