@maslow I've played with WordPress, Grav and Ghost. WordPress w/ plugins supports most of the "fun" functionality like webmentions and micropub easily, then Grav, and lastly Ghost which is very bare "bones" (forgive the pun).
Grav and Ghost may require more tinkering depending on the functionality you're looking for. Perhaps base your decision on how much tinkering/building vs writing you want to do?
The iw wiki has examples of sites for all of them for reference.
@chrisaldrich omg, I know! I'm currently very fascinated by your site setup. I love the concept of a commonplace book. 📖❣️
