Thank you for sharing it. I hope this project can grow enough to replace the current horrible blogging platforms that are popular today. I can't contribute at the moment but I want to point out 2 small graphical bugs that are easy to fix:

1 - the horizontal scroll appears on the home page for some margin or padding that goes outside the container.
2 - in articles, the author's biography is not responsive and does not allow reading (it cannot even be scrolled)
