It's been in development for literally years, now, from well before Drupal 8.0.0 was released (having kids has this severe effect on the amount of spare time you have for this sort of thing). In the same vain as I have always developed this site, this time I wanted to get some practice with Drupal 8 under my belt* (the blog has been om Joomla for the same reason, and the move to WordPress seven years ago had the same background). So, goodbye WordPress, hello Drupal. This feels a bit like coming home.
*: Luckily, by now this is not the only experience I have with Drupal 8.
