From GitHub Pages to Dev.to

I've been using GitHub pages for my blog since 2015, but I never really had much love for the platform. Whenever the mood did strike for me to write a new post, I'd spend so much time setting up the dev environment again that I'd end up losing interest in writing before writing the first word.

The last straw was realizing I couldn't use the Liquid template for tweets because GH pages does not have the plugin for tweets in its allow-list of plugins. Enough was enough!

So, since the major draw of GH pages was having the power to customize layout and theme, and I really don't need that, I wanted to try out dev.to for blogging instead. Let's see how it goes!
