Funny thing is, I just made the switch in the other direction. Wordpress, which I used for years, didn't really give me the control I wanted, and added so much unnecessary complexity. For now, I'm happy with my pure HTML/CSS site (indeliblebluepen.com), and eventually I may add a blog subsection using Grav or some such.

I think mostly that is the direction people go if they know how to code at all or work in this field and not as I did. :)

A lot of folks are moving away from WordPress and doing static sites generated by tools like Gatsby or 11ty. I'm one of those, and I'm really enjoying getting back to basics with a static site, yet being able to create a great blog experience as well.

I think that might be the next thing for me if (and probably when) I get bored with WordPress. :)
