expression{web.blog} Thoughts on Expression Web and web tools in general

A recent article with this title made the point that for small sites, using a CMS or even a CSS framework is often unnecessary overkill. I couldn’t agree more!

Most of the time I deal with small sites, say 10 – 20 pages at most, and although I started using a responsive CSS framework on some, that proved to be unnecessarily complex. I only need a two or three column layout, so why start with a 16 column framework?

And a CMS? I’ve used WordPress where it’s been justified but sometimes use a much simpler solution, ContentSeed, either in it’s Classic ASP or PHP versions.

So yes, it is OK not to use tools, or become over-reliant on them. For some projects keeping things simple is far better.
