We (the folks at linkalist) run a CMS and microservices framework platform called linkalist.io and would love for you to use it.

Our service is designed to give you as much control and ownership over what goes on your website as possible and encourage you to express yourself freely. However, be responsible in what you publish. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items (like spam, viruses, or serious threats of violence) appear on your website.
