And we're live!

After being in offline for 7 months, we're finally back!

Although... if I hadn't been lazy, it would have been back up in early March...

You'll notice all of the existing posts that were on the site are no longer here. That's not because I didn't want them anymore, but because I didn't care about them enough to put in the effort to transfer the data over; get related post meta data, etc. that Wordpress put in for them.

If you want to read the ins and outs about the new website, you can read my previous blog post which explains what's new, why I am no longer using Wordpress, along with a few other things about this new site.

So why did this site take so long to update?

Although I could have written my own theme for Wordpress and used that, making a transfer between site designs very easy, I'm glad I didn't. From building my own admin panel, to some of the front-end elements of this site (e.g. the RSS feed) would have been a real pain, if not impossible, if I had stuck to Wordpress.

In addition to this site, I have also rebuilt the hoi4modding website, which I spent a month or so working on religiously. However, I didn't really spend much time on this site at all, I have only really worked (almost) daily on it since the middle of June. 

When I started building this site, I intended only to use it for reviews and blog posts, and I didn't really see the need to rush the site as that was all I was going to use it for. However, about a week ago, I decided I also want to use this site to record my travels, and with me going to Japan next month, I kicked myself into high gear, and got the site into working condition as fast as I could. 

Speaking of the travel log, I haven't added navigation links to it yet, as there's nothing there. However, I will add them the day before I leave. But if you want to ensure you don't miss an update, from the travel log, these blog posts, or the reviews, you can follow the RSS feed by clicking the icon in the menu.

That's all for today, I'll look at adding comments to the site in the future, but until then the site will be a one way conversation.
