    "Many people, businesses and even bloggers, schools and politicians use tumblr. This is a great place to get ideas, view others profiles and blog history, and make connections. This is a good place to get heard and be seen."

    "I decided to try and make a little extra money writing online blogs. I needed a platform for my blogs. After reviewing a lot of solutions, Jekyll made the most sense. Easy to use and fit what I wanted to do perfectly."

    "Ghost is a full blown blogging platform and content management site that's easy to use, efficient and has technical support. It's used by many non-profits and major corporations and has a desktop app for easy entries. It's also open source and customizable."

    "I needed a good blogging platform for my new blog I'm going to be rolling out this year. A friend of mine tipped me off to grav and I've been using it ever since. Simple, efficient, what else could anyone need?"

    "I wanted something a little different than Wordpress so I found Hugo by chance. Glad I did, it's a very flexible blogging platform. It's ideal for blogs, so it worked perfectly for me. Give it a go, it has a small learning curve."

    "GoNevis is definitely less well known as compared to its more famous competitors WordPress or Square Space, but it still holds its own well enough and is a good option to try out. It's the same basic principle as the other two, but has some character and also has the benefit of not being quite as commercial."

    "Metalsmith is a newer blogging platform that will appeal primarily to people who are need to generate a simple, static built for a website. It doesn't come with the typical tools you would expect from other blogging platforms, and you need to know a bit about website sources and coding in order to make the most of it. It's still a stable platform that will meet the needs of certain bloggers, but if you are looking for something with a more visual, layman-friendly layout and platform, this isn't the best option."

    "Hexo is a lesser known blog package but it's fast, customizable and simple to use once it's installed. It does need to be installed off of Git but once it is, you have a choice of templates and add ons and it's faster than most other blog packages. Basically for intermediate to advanced users."

    "Although accessing memories via a digital file doesn't have quite the same feel to it as finding a shoe box of old photos in the closet when you are cleaning out Grandma's house, Lifetile.me is still a fun way to share memories. It allows for creating a timeline by assigning dates and locations that horizontally scrolls. What I like best about Lifetile.me is that you can store documents as well as pictures and videos."

    "Squarespace is one of the best platforms to setup your blog. It's easy to use and customize, and makes the page look well put together and professional. Whenever someone is on the lookout for making a blog or a different site, I always recommend Squarespace."
