I think the need to blog for a programmer is something inherent. It's a desire to spread knowledge, and create a post is something everyone can read. So it's a bit strange, at least to me, that there are not more blogging platforms targeted at developers. A quick Google search either results in Wordpress plugins, NodeJS HTML generators or CMS solutions.
This happened more often if I have to believe this twitter post: https://twitter.com/iamdevloper/status/743799765566054410. I think there are more developers which create their own blogging software and then blog about it, like... This post. Then again, it shows that there is no proper solution for software development blogs yet.
