Grapefruit has been great. And I still think I do not need more than this one HTML file to have a blog. But I do have a need for more to write.
It is not a secret that I have been tweaking my CV and have been communicating with a recruiter. What is a secret is which companies I have been in touch with, who the recruiter is, and my thoughts on the whole process.
Those are things I want to write about. (And maybe I did.) But they are not things public enough for me to blog about right at this moment. What I need are the unlisted posts I made use of in my old web system. But those do not exist in Grapefruit.
I would argue I only need the web server to put these “unlisted” writings on, but then I can no longer make use of Grapefruit to fix up my HTML. As such I should go back to a completely manual workflow, expand on Grapefruit’s capabilities, or look into going back to something just a bit more CMS-y.
Grapefruit was never built to go beyond a handful of HTML files, so that alternative is out. I also do not think I can get back to the writing flow I got into at the start of the month if every post needs to be a carefully handcrafted piece of HTML. Back on the CMS bandwagon I go.
I’ll be back when I have found something that works for me, works for writing.
