I was a bit worried that in moving this blog from Hugo hosted on Render.com I would suffer a performance drop. The short answer is nope.
I am using a linode $5 a month server with the litespeed web server and MySQL. The only caching tool I am using is the Litespeed WordPress addon. I do also have cloudflare in front of the server.
This same box is also hosting two other WordPress sites. The moral of the story is that modern php / MySQL is plenty fast for personal sites. Static builders are probably only needed if you like the workflow…
