To support my goal of writing 52 posts in 2020, I’ve migrated smockle.com (including my blog) to micro.blog.
I’ve encountered minor bugs—missing footnotes, incorrect colors in the macOS app, broken code fence previews—but the publishing experience is much less hacky than what I used before. Although Gatsby enabled me to load images more efficiently and highlight syntax more beautifully, the simplicity of Micro.blog is appealing1. I expect to hack less and write more.
I’m reminded of how the Oulipo drew inspiration from constraints. ↩︎
