After growing tired of watching out for the latest Wordpress vulnerability that might get my old site compromised, I decided to experiment with creating a Jekyll powered static site. This site is hosted with S3 Static Website Hosting and CloudFront CDN. Now the annoyance of troubleshooting Wordpress upgrades is replaced by a combination of Jekyll, Ruby, Homebrew and OSX upgrades. But now it’s a cool “serverless” site that has very high availability and costs me approx $1/month to host.
