Why I Chose a Static Site Over WordPress for My Company Blog

I gave up on migrating my company blog to WordPress. Instead, I’m sticking with a static site. The benefits are clear:

  • Simple Version Control: Content lives in files instead of a database, so it can be easily stored in a Git repo.
  • Enhanced Security: With content not being dynamic and no login process after file generation, the site is less vulnerable to attacks. Plus, you have backups on a Git server.

Originally, I aimed to make it easier for non-technical freelancers to contribute, but having them write in Docs and using a Markdown plugin works just fine.

In fact, I’m also moving my personal site back from WordPress to Jekyll for the same reasons.
