Where is the best place to look for a full-stack designer and developer?

For a CMS, I recently built my blog from scratch with Ghost and it probably fits your use case (blogging). If you need something more future proof WordPress is always a safe bet, you can still have a custom site outside of WordPress that just renders the content.
Ask HN: What is the most hassle-free way to build a personal blog?
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 28 Jan 2022
TL; DR: What is the most hassle-free way to build a personal blog?
First, I want to explain why I want to save the hassle and save money: My personal blog is ad-free. I just want to write, so it is not worth spending too much time or money (preferably free) on non-writing behaviors, and I do not have the ability to deal with complex, high-maintenance systems.
I am looking for a way to blog that is effortless and have low maintenance on the server side (like static site generator vs WordPress), a way to write the blog that has a better writing environment on my PC. (Maybe a local CMS or something like that)
Few ways I know so far but they are not perfect
The first one: WP2Static plugin for WordPress (or other plugins by WP2Static author Leon Stafford ). They work, but they have some minor issues, they do not export sites perfectly. Other solutions  recommended by Leon I have tried: HTTrack has not been actively developed for a long time (since 2017) and does not work anymore, Wget can't crawl the site intact, Shifter, Stratti are expensive (But they run smoothly), HardyPress' cheap plan has only 500MB, Sitesauce's hosting provider Vercel was censored here. (I know, right?)
The second approach is called Headless CMS . But after doing some research, it seems that running a fully local Headless CMS requires writing complex API calls (Strapi, etc). Better solutions are either expensive or free but require an account and have some limitations. I would prefer a completely local and free solution (I am so greedy :-|). NetlifyCMS seems great but it seems like it can only be hosted on Netlify?
The third way is Ghost . Ghost's writing experience looks good, but if deployed to the server, it may require continuous maintenance. Ghost's static plugin  seems to be not working perfectly. Ghost's Headless CMS also requires writing API calls.
Fourth way: popular services like wordpress.com, Medium, Tumblr, etc. are not accessible in my area, so I can only consider self-hosting.
Why do I have a website?

I could use a hosted solution like ghost which is popular with a some of my peers. This would solve many of the problems I am currently facing but I wouldn't be able to play with everything as it is hosted and therefore someone else's problem. How important that is I will look at later.
Easiest, Free, and Customizable Blogging Platform in 2022?
1 project | reddit.com/r/freelanceWriters | 24 Jan 2022
I really like Ghost - it's simple and easy to setup, you get quite a few design options, the writing experience is similar to Medium, and although it's not free, it's not outrageously expensive. There's absolutely no coding needed.2 projects | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 24 Jan 2022
As an alternative, if you are looking for a blogging platform, you might want to check out ghost. It's open source and self-hostable, simple to use as a user and to keep up to date as an admin.

Over 90 WordPress themes, plugins backdoored in supply chain attack

The CMS space is incredibly crowded. The vast majority of WordPress websites would be cheaper, faster, and more secure if they were just moved to SquareSpace, which has the WordPress features that 99% of sites would need.
For more custom projects, I prefer the headless variety because it makes sense to separate the data and presentation layers. That means you have the full ecosystem and flexibility of HTML/CSS/JS.
Ghost was the first serious competitor I saw years ago. Gatsby is among the most popular these days.
But honestly, information sites should just use SquareSpace or something like it. There's no reason to maintain static site infrastructure at this point.11 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 22 Jan 2022
