What do you use as your blogging site? Do you host it yourself, pay for a service, or just some free site?

I use GitHub for version control. I use Netlify to deploy, host, and DNS. I love Netlify. I also have Netlify CMS to help me add content easily to my static website.

The static website is Jekyll. I started with Jekyll well over 2 years ago. I bought a theme that I have tweaked over the years.

Without Netlify CMS, I used to add a blog and run jekyll serve to "develop" my post. I quickly realized this was not going to scale after I started blogging daily, and I added Netlify CMS which ultimately let me publish from the back of Lyfts 😂
