I'm thinking of redesigning my website and 5 portfolios soon.
And as much as I love spending hours a week designing and coding for my clients, when it comes to my own blogs, I'd prefer to use automated tools as much as possible and get straight to the point. Paste some text, style it, add images that instantly look great, etc.
Don't get me wrong, I speak fluent HTML, CSS, JS and a few others. But for this personal project, I don't want to put in hours of coding to get a beautiful result.
In the recent years, tumblr kind of disappeared out of sight, Medium, started adding nasty paywalls, and I've heard of many tools that are supposed to be super-duper-simple to use - blot, typehut, proseful... but also have paying options or a steep learning curve.
What I'd need is a tool that lets you type away a title and copy, add images, and that outputs a simple CSS and HTML file I can integrate and host myself on non-wordpress websites. The idea is to focus on producing the content, and to be able to do so quickly and often, not coding it every time.
I've tried a few tools online when I've had to do a quick and dirty HTML conversion in the past (convert from word doc, etc), but these usually spit out a pretty disgusting code.
I'm interested in seeing examples of what you guys have used.
