STATIC-WEBPAGES - Why I choose to use static webpages
Let me explain. To make my site dynamic and exciting would require me to write some kind of code that's more complex than basic HTML, which I can edit easily and represents my meaning well. As it is, I can have my site styles very consistently and in an (I think) aesthetically pleasing way with minimal effort, I can hand-write every aspect of my website without referring to documentation.
I am using HTML, HyperText Markup Language as exactly that: basic text formatting. And for this format, it works great. I get to have my page styled like a man page and feel quirky and put my projects online just fine, and years down the line, there's no way what I have constructed here will be deprecated.
Add in an appreciation for lightweight websites, and it's a decision that was dead easy to make. I've seen wordpress blogs, sure they look nice, sure they let you post comments, but whatever. If people really care to give me feedback, they can shoot me an email at email@example.com, and if the comment is good enough I guess I can include it at the bottom or something.
I am not a web design professional, nor am I an expert in many of the fields I post about. Take my word with a grain of salt, and always do research on your own.
