    I realize that this will sound controversial but - I'm setting one up right now, and it'll use...


    And the most popular WordPress template out there. Why? Support, flexibility, and no need to worry about anything. It's simple, takes the least amount of time and allows me some really cool and quick fancy blog post creation abilities.

    We're designers. It's our task to work within constraints. The ones I gave myself were very tight, but with a focus on quickly getting content out there ASAP at as little effort as possible.

    To get those and maintain the flexibility and future-proof-ness (lol words) I'll settle for the industry standard!

      No shame! I'm still a big fan of WordPress – and the WP Rest API now offers a lot of flexibility in terms of being able to move away from reliance on PHP to render the front-end.

      All about the WP! I've used Semplice by Mr van Schneider. It was quick to set up, meant I didn't have to worry about using any of WP default themes/settings etc and I had my website up in no time (pretty basic but w/e).
