  • Evaluate/test use of templates (pug), Jekyll, ...
  • RestructuredText vs commonmark (markdown)
  • Consider hosting on,

Once you have it, it could be nice to have a comparison per point between the different options that you have investigated.
Also, it could be great that you could show which is the best option for you per each point.
