Blogging from dropbox with

My (dutch) running blog is hosted by Which is a tool that uses Evernote for blogging. A note in Evernote is published to my blog when the right tags are assigned. They won the Evernote Devcup 2013 Gold Award.

Today I received an email that will continue only as a paid / premium service. My free account will be shut down archived on March 17. The cost is $45 a year and totally worth it, if only I would actively post this way. uses dropbox for publishing my markdown formatted posts. The look-and-feel is customizable through the dashboard. It is free for now.

Markdown is the new standaard for formatting blogposts. More platforms adopt it. The key is the separation of text and format from the implementation which is mostly HTML and CSS.

Customization of the CSS and the template HTML is in the online dashboard. I would have like to see this in dropbox files, but it works. Just make a backup myself.

Since only some relatives visit my running blog the price must be right. Whenever the price changes I’m free to move my blog somewhere else since I own all the posts in my dropbox.

If you can read dutch 🙂 here is my blog:

Working in a DevOps team is the best thing that happened to me. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
