At the dentist on Friday:
A Herbert Grönemeyer song played on the radio and my dentist started whistling along while I was on the dentist’s chair.
I briefly started talking about WordPress alternative with @persillie the other evening.
Downsides of WordPress:
- It’s slow
- It’s not easy enough to use for non-techies
- Adding a shop could be a lot easier
She mentioned Squarespace:
I like the user interaction of #squarespace – but you need to be a US, Canadian, Irish or british resident to use the shop.

I found two articles with further ideas to explore:
Statamic, Craft, Ghost, Kirby, Perch, Jekyll
I looked at Jekyll very briefly some months ago. But I didn’t dig in enough. It’s for techies. I don’t think it will solve the user interaction issues that non-techies have.
BTW, way back in 2009 somebody used WordPress to generate flat files.
I’ve signed up for Protonmail.ch:

I think this is a great development. Instead of trying to get people to use PGP… maybe this will catch on.

There’s another company in this space called Lavaboom.
