Back to Dropbox with Blot

About 18 months ago I transitioned the publishing of this site to use Git. It was cool, but overly cumbersome for my needs.

I avoided posting here because of the overhead that Git created with respect to the publishing process.

At the same time, I didn’t want to install Dropbox on my computers because of its massive overhead, and I don’t use Dropbox for anything else.

I’ve got a solution now though. I can write in any app. On my Mac I can use Commander One (part of Setapp) to remotely connect to Dropbox without the client. On iOS I can install the Dropbox app, but alternatively I can use an action in Drafts, like I’m doing here, to write and publish in a single step.
