In times past, if someone wants to create a blog, the only recommendation was to use Wordpress.
This blog post aims to teach two methods of creating a blog.
Well it was written in PHP which doesn’t turn out to be a good language because of the likes of Python and Golang
It wasn’t very configurable: you had to read a lot to configure wordpress.
Its a very easy to use markdown and convert it to html in your code. A quick search on Google would provide this.
This approach do not use a database (which are not easy to scale). This approach can be very scalable.
This is the approach I used for this blog.
A problem with this solution is advanced formatting which is not possible with Markdown. And most times these advanced presentation are not necessary.
Another problem with this solution is non-programmers might complain that they don’t want to learn markdown.
A quick search on google can get you many editors, some paid some free.
I would like to recommend trix editor . I have used this on a project.
In this method you would have to do the saving and retrieval of blog posts to a database.
This approach is easier to the user but you would have to include a database or a files layer.
