Speed! Join Me In This Journey of Optimization
A Lot to Improve for Speed…
My website could use a lot of work particularly with speed, but I want to see if how fast I can get it. This will be looking into installing and configuring NginX, looking at new ways of building websites from just using Guttenberg to custom coding templates with ACF fields. This is going to take months because I plan to do most of it using free tools and I need more credits for ShortPixel to optimize my images.
What If WordPress Is Just Not Fast Enough
Even if WordPress can’t compete with new technologies like React, it is still a very easy to use CMS system. This means that if after all my work, I decide it is still slow, then I will be looking into building a Gatsby site that when built queries the posts into a GraphQL Database. I then may be able to make some kind of script that forces a rebuild whenever I release a new blog. Giving me a fully optimized site each time. Time will tell.
Plans I have To Try And Improve Speed
Smile =D, life is short and should be fun and enjoyable.
Basically, I removed stuff from my home Page template, so it doesn’t load anything but the content (Elementor made page) instead of conditional statements and the ability to add a navigation bar since I do not have a navigation bar.
…. There are so many way to build websites…sometimes you just gotta choose one and say fuck it, build it all and let Google decide. I’m kind of the John Wayne of SEO.
