I have a similar workflow. I use Vim almost exclusively but I do switch to VS Code for the Markdown preview - I didn't realise there was no standard for it though.

I often use the spell checking in Vim: :set spell! to toggle on/off. I often have to :h spell to remember all the commands but z= on a word brings up a list of suggestions and ]s moves to the next bad word.

I have written my own site a few times but switched to Jekyll a year or two ago because the less of my own code hanging around doing stuff the better and any features I want are just a Gem away.

This made me laugh as I switched from Jekyll to writing my own site a year or two ago. I think it was the Liquid tags that did it - found the syntax confusing and occasionally magical.

TBH I still think I could do it all with Pandoc and a few scripts, but I CBA to work it out right now.

Always.
