    Looking good!

    Just wondering—why do you even position it as a "static site generator"? What if a customer is not a developer? Maybe you could position it differently as a super simple and super fast wordpress alternative.

      That is fair, we shouldn't assume that users understand what a static site generator is (or that they need to know at all) but should instead highlight the resulting benefits like speed, security, and portability.

      On one end you get an Evernote/Notion/Bear style editor and on the other you get a reliably fast and personal feeling website.

      Totally agree with this. I know what "the power of a static site generator" is because I built my site on Gatsby/Netlify, but that also means I don't need this service. The target market should be people that want something fast, simple and secure but don't necessarily care what "static site generator" means.

      p.s. Love the website! The black/white simplicity perfectly matches the value prop in the header
