I was a big fan of static blog generator. Read the first line carefully I am writing “I was”. Why? This is a second time when I switched my blogging platform. First I switch from octopress to hexo and now switch from Hexo to WordPress. Why I switch from hexo, because according to my earlier post hexo is better than octopress and both static blogging platform provides great security of your content as compared to WordPress. Why WordPress after seeing many disadvantage or this move is really worthy?. Check below article which is explaining my decision.
Note: All points based on my personal experience, don’t compare with any pro blogger points which is already populated on Google.
Difference between WordPress and Static Blogs Generators
Why Do I choose Octopress and HEXO as my main blogging platform in past?
Answer: That time I studied at college to pursuing my “electronics & communication engineering” and that time it’s difficult to write a post every week or every month. So that time static blog engines are very handy and save my time to manage hosting and updating WordPress, but now I work as a production head of TECHELEX. TECHELEX give opportunity to every employee to do own work in free time even in TECHELEX OFFICE (like us on Facebook to get updates about upcoming vacancies in TECHELEX) . Due to this great facility now I am able to manage my blog and hosting. Now its time to come on main points.
If you read How to Do Last Night Engineering Study? then you seen article is not written by me. It’s written by My Buddy Aziz. Due to no multi-author function Aziz unable to write this post in hexo platform then we decided to migrate on WordPress and we are happy with this decision.
Unable to write from Remote Location
Think if you out from home and you are unable to use your machine where your static blog generator software installed. What do you in this situation? only one solution writes your post and mailed someone who access your machine and then publish your post, but I am not satisfied with this situation so I migrate my platform :-).
This is a main point in this article, Hexo has great SEO functionality but this not compete with WordPress. WordPress does not have strong SEO setting but some great plugin come to solve this situation like WordPress SEO by Yoast (now used at this Blog).
End of story is I am Bored with Static Blog Generators.
If you change your platform too then please tell me what’s the reason behind it.
