I initially browsed through some list of CMS I found online (e.g. awesome-selfhosted and Wikipedia) and got a list of 40 different solutions that sounded interesting on first sight.

Amoung those are some which absolutely cannot see using. But up to this point I'm trying to be as objective as possible to find a solutions that fits my needs perfectly. Perhaps, I even surprise myself.
