Congrats to Ken on his move to a “roll your own” website. Following Brent Simmons’ lead and my schedule (hey, 2 years is not unreasonble, and now I have proof), he’s made the jump to baking his site. You should really click and read because his excitement is palpable. This resonated with me:
My code will never win any awards, but I am very proud of how it came out. The whole system works exactly the way I want it to and having everything text-based has so many benefits. Also, knowing I will almost certainly tweak my workflow at some point, it is very empowering to have complete control of the site from start to finish.
Congrats, Ken! The site looks awesome and I’m honored to be a small part of the process. (And yeah, you’re gonna love that “control” aspect. Try not kill any children or kittens.)
