It feels like there are new security issues around WordPress every week.
Admittedly, the fact that WordPress automatically updates itself helps a lot, but it does lead one to wonder if a simpler solution might make more sense.
One friend suggested using Pelican, and using Github's built-in editor to create the Markdown, so I suppose I should explore that.
What I would really love to see is a solution where I could compose on my mobile devices in Markdown, then somehow get those changes checked into Github so I could statically generate my blog later from a computer.
Apparently, I want everything :)
A middle of the road solution might be to simply give up and let Wordpress.com manage my blog, but I think it's helpful to keep some skin in the game and run my own site given that I build infrastructure for a living.
If anyone reading this has any amazing solutions to the problems I pose here I'd love to hear about it!
