No more Wordpress!

Wordpress has gotten me down of late, so i've decided to switch.

I wanted something that was LIGHTWEIGHT, FAST and EASY to edit. This ruled out a lot of popular CMS systems like Drupal, Joomla and Wordpress.

I wanted something that would run on a 128MB VPS if needed, and while being pretty static was very easy to edit. No management panels or logins for me.

This lead me to looking at

Jekyll - which allows you to use your favourite text editor to transform your text in to a static website or blog.

All I needed to do was install and brush up on a bit of

Markdown - which seemed easy enough!

I build the pages with Jekyll some CSS and some Markdown .yml files and then simply use Nginx to serve them.

So far so good. I've got 2 static sites running and i've got a ton of resources free (yes I know this isn't a 128MB VPS but it was sitting idle at the time!):
