Wordpress websites can look great, but unless you've got some decent hosting grunt behind them AND your visitors have plenty of bandwidth, they are so slooooow. And slow isn't good for you, your visitors, and importantly, Google!  Not only that but there's a significant maintenance overhead - there's always a plug-in update to apply, or a system update that you apply with your fingers crossed in case any of your plug-ins haven't caught up yet.

EDIT:  We upgraded and re-named this system to Flyte - more info here.

You only need a few plug-ins to slow your Wordpress installation down even further, they all have to be loaded in before the pages are delivered to your visitor. And the constant stream of updates (which can break things so it becomes a constant grind of backing everything up beforehand) together with the fact that it keeps stuff like session information and all revisions, means you've got quite an admin overhead there.

So if you're not particularly net-savvy and you don't want to spend your evenings doing backups before you apply updates you might need something like the thing you're looking at right now.  Having years of experience with Wordpress we decided to build a low cost, fast, lightweight, easy to use CMS system and this is it. For us there are only two reasons not to use Wordpress (or Drupal etc) - and they are to do with the updates, plugins, and heavy overheads - check out our article on the full Wordpress Pros And Cons.

This (our) blogging system is lightweight and dead simple to use. You can blog a video, insert a picture gallery, or just write a load of stuff like this!  Here's an inserted gallery of random images by way of an example..

As always, this is a responsive system, which means it looks just as great on a smartphone or tablet as it does on a desktop, and it contains special markup for social sharing, so it will also look great when you post a link to your blog on FaceBook or Twitter etc.

And it's all industry standard stuff.. PHP, HTML5, CSS3, and MySQL etc.
