Scriptogr.am looks like a very nifty idea for a quick, easy, and painless blog setup!
The beauty of Scriptogr.am is its simplicity. All you need to do is edit a text file, save it, and you've already posted your blog. And while knowledge of the Markdown language is required, it's not wholly necessary in order to create a post. Creating posts from within the online editor is simple, and even includes formatting buttons for bold and italic text, ordered and unordered lists, blockquotes, and three levels of headings (h1, h2, h3).
Here's an example style guide:
Heading Level 1
Heading Level 2
Heading Level 3
Bold text, Italic text, Bold and italic text
text in a code format
An ordered list
An unordered list
- Pursuit of happiness
And this is a blockquote. Additional formatting can be done within the blockquote as well. Example: this is bold text
