Getting Out of Your WordPress Comfort Zone

Lessons Learned by Stepping Outside WordPress Comfort Zone – WordPress Tavern

I love WordPress. More than that, I appreciate what WordPress has allowed me to accomplish over the years. However, I was no longer happy with it for my personal blog. It was suitable for the job, but I often found it had a lot more gadgets and gizmos than I needed. I had also been writing blog posts in Markdown for many years rather than the classic editor. WordPress was simply no longer a part of my workflow for my blog. At times, it was a hindrance.

This whole article rings very true to me. I recently switched this site off of WordPress and the concerns voiced in this article made me go 🙌 a few times.

If you don’t read the article, it’s worth noting that after a dalliance with some other options, this experience made him love WordPress even more.
