From a writing perspective, what I like most about 1999.io is that it has all the simplicity of EditThisPage, which is how I first started blogging, but it is missing some of what you might call "power user" features that I have become accustomed.
My hope/expectation is that over time Dave will add some of these features. Here are features/functions that I wish exist in 1999.io:
From a hosting perspective, what I like most is that it has been easy for me to automate the process of copying the HTML pages created by 1999.io to an Amazon S3 bucket that I can use to host my blog.
My main issue with how I have Fargo set up is that fargoPublisher needs to be running in order for my blog to be accessible, even though the HTML is stored in an S3 bucket. By default, the 1999.io node app serves HTML from the server's local storage, but it is easy to add a callback script to copy the HTML to S3. This page is served from my cloud server and this page is served from S3. The URL to the S3 site is the one I will promote when I share links.
