For years I’ve used Wordpress to host my site, which has been great but it’s overkill for what I need. I’d be happier to write the HTML myself if it wasn’t such a maintenance pain keeping consistency across all the pages. I hated having to update WordPress continually to ensure my site is secure. In order to keep all my site source in Git I have to synchronise the changes that happen automatically on the server, like updates and uploads / media files back to my working copy to commit them. And it doesn’t enable me to keep any of my content in Git, which is most important, I have to take regular database backups for this.
