Emmigrating From Wordpress

I started to use WordPress in 2014 and now at the beginning of 2016, I emigrated. First of all, as a software, WordPress is a great utility. I was quite confortable to use it. Even last year, my grandfather told me that he wants to record his memories on some place!

First, he tried to do it with Microsoft Word and lost some files, became tired: gave up. Consequently, I introduced WordPress to him with quick demo and set bookmark to his browser. Then, by few clicks, he was able to publish; and quickly get used to it.

Now he wants them to be in a book format and - with my strong academic background :) - I started to do Latex Kung Fu for him... (We published the book five months after this post)

But, WordPress is quite demanding in terms of money :/ In order to do domain mapping, he yearly asks thirteen boxes. Well, it's kind of okey; since you use software + hosting is handled by him etc. Nevertheleess, it threats you to show adds on your page and propose a new payment method which costs hundred boxes for you -which is not for me..

Consequently, in home I started put my eyes on BootStrap themes and decided to move blog to GitHub. To do so, I just initiated web page repo, then set my DNS config on my domain service page, and lastly added single line CNAME file on repo. In 2 hours, DNS propagation was done and my web page with free hosting and without add threads became published.
