Long time no see - as they say!
I was running a blog more or less for many many years. Sometimes posted more, sometimes less. Some of the post got supper popular like the one when I described how to configure a wireless router with polish ISPs. Technologies changed, life changed so now it’s also time for a change in the blog! :)
The old blog was a bit separated. I had a blog http://tomaszwisniewski.com which was hosted in one of our local polish hosting companies. Then a second blogger was created - http://azure.tomaszwisniewski.com - to facilitate all of my endeavor’s with Microsoft Azure. Was that a good idea? In some sense yes, in some not.
Both of the blogs were hosted on WordPress with MySQL - as mentioned the first one in local hosting company and the second one to make it a “true” Azure blog was hosted on and Azure subscription.
But now it’s time for something new…
I have decided to migrate the blog itself and the engine to much simpler solution which I think is pretty standard in todays world :)
- First of all I have decided to host the blog on GitHub Pages. Super simple, easy to use and you have it for free with your GitHub account. I thought about hosting it on Azure Storage with static website support but Microsoft bought GitHub so anyway you can say that the site stays in the ecosystem ;)
- As for the engine goes there was some debate and thoughts about it but I have ended up with jekyll as my site engine of choice.
- And finally for the environment which I prefer to use while maintaining this blog is of course everybody’s favorite - Visual Studio Code!
As always - this blog will remain tech-focused with maybe some additions of other stuff but I’ll see how it goes and what people like to read more on the blog.
