The first and major reason is I am moving from self hosting the content to having it hosted by someone else. In this case I am making use of CloudFlare Pages to host static pages. That would be reason two, static pages. I dont really change my pages a whole lote so the CPU time is wasted by wordpress on a page load. This allows me to push the caching of the page as far out as I can. The third reason is instead of managing what basically comes to a database with a web frontent wrapper, I wanted something a little more “tangiable”. So by going with Jekyll I am able to write pages in markdown, store them in github and have Jekyll build pages with deployment on CloudFlare Pages.
