I’ve finally found a workflow that lets me just write, using whatever device I have handy, and avoid all the hassle of setting up any kind of server or CMS or even a static site generator. I love programs like Wordpress or Hugo or Jekyll, but for this site, they’re all overkill. Give me a text editor, a Markdown renderer, a Git client, and a web browser and I’m good to go for most of my writing. For more ephemeral content, like my daily snark or a photostream, I still want control, but I don’t want to have to think too hard and I don’t want to keep it all in a silo run by some large company that doesn’t want to play nice. So, I use a lot of IndieWeb stuff in the form of Micro.blog tools.
