One thing I can definitely understand is a move away from WordPress. Like you, after years of using it, I decided it was overkill for anything short of an online magazine. That was about the time my philosophy on computing in general changed… So I started looking for something different. I applaud you for finding something you like. Right now, I’m building mostly static sites, using Ghost as a blog platform on said sites. I don’t use a CMS in the most traditional sense. I thought about using Jekyll but ultimately decided I’d rather work with Node than Ruby. You should still try Git though. Coolest thing is the ability to endlessly mess around with zero fear of breaking anything. Second coolest thing is the collaboration that becomes possible.
