Pelican is a fine blogging platform, but I found I was more tempted to work on the blogging platform itself than to blog on it after a while. Then I’d feel guilty because I was using custom builds of Pelican that I had a hard time upgrading to anything new on… etc… etc.
I’ve moved to wordpress.
- Is it the most secure?
- Does it have every feature I want?
- I’m using the hosted version, so no it doesn’t.
- Is it in a language I like hacking in?
- Not even close.
So it begs the question why I’d use it. The biggest reason is that it is purely a blogging platform. I can just sit back and write posts. If the day comes that I want to get away from wordpress it is a common enough action that there is plenty of tooling around exporting your data.
Hoping that the end result is start blogging again, especially after the initial honeymoon period.
