I like to divide tools into things that solve difficult computer science problems and ones that are just plain cool, like Jekyll. The latter category is like a drug since you can get lost having fun doing so much stuff without needing to think too deeply with all the rough mental workouts. But that usually isn't rewarding in hindsight. It's better to be attracted to the austere. There's less distraction that way. Although, swearing off the shiny things doesn't necessarily preclude having a more fabulous web design, OP ;)
