I’ve had this post in my drafts folder for *months* now Actually, it’s ever since I realised how hard it is to manage content with Static Site Generator, and flipped back to WordPress.

I had some rough notes, but never got around to writing the post out in a long-form. Here’s my notes:

Then I read a post by Florens Verschelde, entitled Static Site Generators, where he said everything I wanted to say and then some. So why re-invent the wheel?

It turns out that static site generators are terrible at handling content. Which is too bad, because that’s one of their very few features to begin with.
