I made this site static

This site is using WordPress to create and manage the content, but I decided to experiment with exporting the entire site as a static site.

This means that WordPress is ‘switched off’ and only the HTML, CSS, Javascript, and other required assets (images etc.) are available in the site.

This means that it’s faster to load and there’s less chance of security related problems. It’s also more sustainable (less resources consumed to create the page – better for the environment), and I think it’ll be really inexpensive to host as well.

This static site approach is useful for sites that are not dynamic, and not updated all that often, which is exactly what this site is.

Anyway, now you know. If you’re interested in the way that I did this, it was easy, I used the Simply Static plugin.
