After some deliberation, I decided to make the move to switch web properties from Wordpress to Webflow. I've also built sites on Cargo Collective and Squarespace, so I'm pretty versed generally about what's out there.

The reason for Webflow is twofold: First is due to how much control you have. The design is fully yours to customize.

Secondly, the CMS is built like a form, so you can practically manage content like you would with a content calendar that's based on Sheets or Airtable.

If all of this is new to you, I'd note that more interesting trend here is the push for more "No Code" tools – these are a new layer in the tech stack that allows everyday people to build web apps, mobile apps, and websites without technical knowledge.

If you're curious, you can check out my personal site or my blog.

For reference to what's possible, I'm building sites like this in a ~1day at this point. Very easy to spin up.

Other things to consider:

  • There are fewer plug-ins like WordPress
  • But, it's still being developed so there are new features regularly
  • It's better for static sites than blogs IMO
  • They have fantastic video tutorials


Thanks to Ben Tossel and his Makerpad for tutorials.
