I have been trying out different static blogging platforms for the past few months. I started with Jekyll. Since I was coming from WordPress, i didn’t get the ease of use you have with WordPress while blogging by writing .md files. So I tried looking at the alternatives.
First try was with the Publii. Its a software installed on windows which can help you write and publish documents. They have an integration with Netlify to make the life easier. Even though i liked the approach something was missing.
Second attempt was with Stackbit. First of all, Stackbit is awesome. But for my blogging purpose, it too missed something. I will be back at stackbit for another projects soon.
Now I am back at Jekyll again. This time, it is being deployed with Zeit instead of at netlify. Let see how it goes.
