For many years now I have trained myself to use the term โ€œweb searchโ€ most people get that, and Iโ€™m also not pushing my non google agenda too hard.

Recently, I've just resorted to saying "Look it up online" to avoid using the word Google. I have a real distaste for generic trademarks, so I tend to use neutral terms if I can.

Yeah, I've decided to do with "look it up" as it's also 3 syllables (like "Google it") and still rolls off the tongue nicely.

Like you said in the post, "search for it" doesn't have any context but I feel if you omit "for" and just say "Search It" in today's world is a given that you mean online IMHO.

Yeah, great point. "search it" does work well.

I think the front runners at the moment are "search it" and "look it up".

Thanks!

Hi Kev.. I found your site from my phone google discover. I really want to use static site instead of WordPress, but it is not easy to switch to, especially for me who have no ability on coding.

The main problem with WordPress is that it is very popular that so many hackers attempt to hijack. It's very tiring. Everytime updates come, plugin compatibility starts giving issues.

Is easier way to move to static site?

Thanks

Hey Aliv,

The fact of the matter is that static sites like Jekyll require more coding knowledge than something like WordPress. If you want a user interface that you can login to and use, I'd suggest looking into NetlifyCMS - it will allow you to have a portal you login to and manage your site, similar to WordPress.

You can easily deploy a selection of static sites with NetlifyCMS using this link - https://www.netlifycms.org/docs/start-with-a-template/

Good luck!

Now that you've gone meta with the post about your writing workflow, may I suggest a related topic?

Would love to read your take on writing and style. Your writing is clear and fun to read (even if it's on something as foreign to me as fishkeeping). Makes me wonder how you do it!

I've always thought I was a fairly poor writer to be honest. I just try to write how I would talk to someone over a beer. ๐Ÿ˜„

I'll add this to my list of drafts though.
