When I first created this site I wanted to get it live as quickly as possible. Hexo, a blogging framework written in Node.js, seemed like the perfect tool. At the time I was rather interested in Node.js, so it seemed natural to use a framework rooted in that community.

By the time of my last post I'd become increasingly disinterested in Node.js and much more interested in Rust and its community. It was mostly procrastination, but I convinced myself that using a tool written in a language I didn't use often directly contributed to the paucity of posts here, so I finally decided to ditch Hexo.
