After six years on Google’s Blogger platform I migrated my blog to Hugo. Blogger was a great platform to start blogging, it was/ is very easy to set up, and perhaps most importantly I didn’t have to invest time or money to test if I enjoyed writing a blog.
However, over the last year or so, a couple of things started to annoy me so much that I stopped enjoying writing posts on Blogger.
Why the old and the new need to share time together It takes time to appreciate the new. Even if the new is much better than the old. It is easy to forget when you yourself created the exciting new.
At the end of August 2011 Google announced a new Blogger interface. The new interface offered about the same functionality, but had a different look and feel. At first I was reluctant to use it.
