Luckily, it was easy to brush off once I saw the bit about self-hosting.
Also, I don’t have a blog platform switching obsession.
I have my 6 month chip.
But his tweet did trigger something in my brain, because I’ve spent most of tonight looking at Dropbox integrated blogging platforms. Things like [Scriptogr.am](http://scriptogr.am/), [Markbox](http://www.markbox.io/) and [Skrivr](http://skrivr.com/).
They work by turning markdown formatted text files in Dropbox into blog posts … they don’t do much else. But the ability to just write a text file and stick it in a folder with any images I’d like to use sounds perfect for how I’m doing most of my writing these days: markdown formatted in text editors like Byword, Drafts and Editorial. I’m not using a ton of other features with my blog anyways.
I’m not ready to leave Squarespace, because it’s 90% awesome and I feel like they’ve got something in the works that’ll make publishing a little bit better. But I might start playing around with one or two of those other services on the side.
