Hello World

Hello from Hexo! I’m starting out with a new blog engine and without any of the old content.

After losing all of my data do to a VPS crash, I decided not to restore from my backups. My backup method was outdated, and it would have been more effort than it is worth. The traffic data indicates that nobody is going to miss the old content.

Instead of a dynamic site backed by a database, I decided to use a static site generator whose configuration and data can be version controlled using git. Welcome to Hexo!

In future posts, I will describe my process for version control, automated generation, and automated deployment of this blog.
