Greymatter. It’s a name that makes many web hosts shudder, but for long-time bloggers like me, it brings back fond memories. When I purchased my very first domain in 2001, I immediately began blogging on it with the use of Greymatter. Back in those days, Greymatter wasn’t just a blogging script or CMS, it was THE blogging script, THE CMS to have.
And I had it. And loved it.
Of course, looking back on things, I don’t see how I loved a bajillion templates, the thousands of .html files that would be generated for my archives, and the constant rebuilding every time I created a new layout. But you know what? Greymatter served its purpose, and it did what I needed it to do. So I definitely give kudos to it!
And if you happen to be interested in trying out Greymatter now, despite the majority of bloggers using WordPress? You can do so — download it here.
