I wish there was a simple answer to the question, “What do you use for your blog?” The best answer tends to be, “It depends.”

On what does it depend? Well…

  • My mood
  • If I’m in plain-text mode or pointy-clicky mode
  • How long I’ve been using the same (now boring) platform(s)
  • If I’m in minimalist mode or feature-complete mode
  • How much I feel like dealing with servers
  • Am I in everything-in-one-place mode or each-thing-plays-a-part mode?
  • How important is convenience over permanence/performance?
  • What day of the week is it?

Based on the current combination of the above, I will use WordPress, Blot, Micro.blog, Hugo, or org-mode.

Or more likely, I’ll use ALL of them!
