Hello World, From bashblog

April 02, 2020 — Jt Spratley

I'm learning bashblog so I can migrate my blog from the WordPress content management system (CMS). WordPress is a great CMS. As I've said many times, WordPress helped me learn HTML. But it's time to evolve.

I have a few goals with bashblog:

  • Simplify my writing process
  • Better secure my website
  • Challenge myself with another less traveled path

Yes, there are more well known website builders that can do some of those things


  • Drupal is more security-focused and uses PHP and MySQL
  • GravCMS is really nice, like WordPress with Markdown
  • Jekyll is a very popular static HTML site builder
  • Basic HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap like I did with the original JtSpratley.com
