I'm thinking of starting a small recipe blog these days but I have no idea what platform to pick....
I would need something free & at least a bit customizable :blob_cat_peek:

Any advice, fediverse? [boosts appreciated]

@lokenstein I tried and tried and ultimately threw everything through the window, planned to build my own thing a while ago, but never got around building one.

I found the bludit blog CMS to be pretty simple to use though

@lokenstein WriteFreely is quite nice, and allows setting custom css for blogs like the themeing on write.pixie.town/thufie/

it's also ActivityPub compatible, so people can follow your blog's account to receive it's updates right in their masto timeline

@lokenstein host it on GitHub pages with a static site generator like Hugo, Jekyll etc?

@lokenstein

I've been using github for my recipe blog.

It'll turn a pile of linked markdown files into a site.

github.com/emceeaich/texeira.c which gets served out of texeira.coffee, but you don't need to set up a domain for this.

GitLab should do something similar.

@emma That chipolte sweet potato recipe tho **Chef's kiss**

@lokenstein
I'm enjoying @write_as
Puts your blog on the fediverse.
Free to start but I ended up paying them a bit of money for some extra features and to support their service.
