I set up this blog here for tech / video game stuff. I’m using Hexo which is pretty nice, and Surge, which is amazing. The Hexo theme is Frame, with a couple of modifications.
The cool thing about Hexo is that you write all posts locally as markdown files, and then Hexo generates a full blog made out of just static webpages, including tags, archives, etc - which means you don’t need a big fancy CMS or anything. And because the blog is just made out of static pages, you can host it with something simple like Surge.
I’ve backdated a couple of posts to create the illusion I’ve had this blog for a while, please don’t tell anyone
