So I made a switch. I found Postleaf thanks to Codrops Collective #234, and I must say, I am in love with it. Postleaf is an open source blogging platform with inline editing, handlebar templates, and a beautiful user interface.
My site is now running Postleaf, and I have found it to be very easy to install, set up and use. Don't get me wrong, I love Wordpress as much as the next girl, though I have always felt it was "overkill" for my needs. Postleaf does all I need, without itself, getting in the way. Simple, easy blogging. Perfect.
I am currently running the "sticko" theme, though I have heavily modified it to suit my needs. I found editing the theme was simple to follow and easy to accomplish just what I wanted. I am really looking forward to digging in and trying my hand at creating a theme myself. I just need to find the spare time!
