Now rather than running the hexo-server instance & reverse proxying this with nginx, I'm generating the static files through hexo and serving this folder through nginx. This has dramatically reduced the CPU resources required for running the website.
The site should be much speedier. I could squeeze some further optimizations out of nginx through Google's pagerank/pagespeed module, however when I last had to update the letsencrypt ssl cert it was overwritten and led to several hours downtime.

Any plans to make your own smoke website like mine? Pretty decent visitor stats for a short lived blog, in a year or two's time it'll probably have quite a large audience which is great for smoke in the end. On the down side I've made nothing from the affiliates, but that's not the primary purpose of the website to be honest and won't factor in its uptime.
Any suggestions for the site? Any plans to run your own witness? Know anyone who might want to run a witness?
