Dubiousdisc and I have started what I guess is technically a blog site of sorts: Staircase Spirit. We wanted a place where we could write articles about various head-canons, fridge logic, rants, raves, and the like in a place where they do not need to be fully fleshed out fansites and where we could always go back and edit and add to what we've written before.

Currently there are three articles, and while it is 66% Pokemon-related right now, and we intend to write a lot more about Pokemon, we also will write about things other than Pokemon, we promise. :P

It runs on... us, lol. In the PHP, we currently have it set up with an Article object, so each article can know its title and author and so on. And all the Article objects are in a list. The front page goes through the list and asks all the articles to print their preview link. And when you view the article, at the top the article will print its own title and info, and at the bottom, the article will find its place in the list to get the links to the next and previous articles. I strongly suspect it could be very much optimized and improved, but it is working for now, and Dubiousdisc is managing to stop me from making the code too complicated before I actually, you know, write more articles. :P

HOLY HECK you're amazing! I thought it ran on maybe WP or a static blog generator but this is even more rad!

@nyxmidnight Our thought was that we wanted to have each page have a base template, but with different headers and details and colors according to what we want out of each article. Stuff like Wordpress seemed like way overkill and I'm not sure how easy it would be to get it to do what we wanted anyway, so instead we did this :D

Ritabuuk can be hard on herself all she wants, but actually it works already pretty well! It's already very light and does what we wanted so I say it's a success 8)

(By the way, there's a new article and it's not Pokemon-related, so we're managing not to sink so far XD)

We also added a Disqus-powered comment section, just in case :eyes:

Omg you two, this is awesome! A better version of CMS that is LIGHTWEIGHT *o* I love how it looks and I LOVE that name. The article for the Tumblr post block for nsfw and the Unicode fix for mobile were A+.

Seeing this makes me want to get back into blogging lol
I accept your challenge, "high prince", but I am no general.
