I’ve decided it’s about time I started writing down some of my testing thoughts again. (I making audio/video content, but sometimes people just prefer to see it written down.)
It’s a few years since I’ve had a blog, and I’ve had mixed experiences with various platforms:
- Blogger seems rather passé these days
- Wordpress: see above, but at least it has dynamic-looking themes to disguise the clunky back-end
- Ghost: The last platform that I used, I had good experiences although they seem to be pivoting more towards a newsletter/membership/subscription platform
- Medium: I’ve created an account there, but the site seems like a bit of a hodge-podge and they have a weird history of censorship and paywalls
Ideally I’m looking for a platform that allows me to self-host or point to my own domain, but that’s not essential (I can always do my own URL rewrites).
I’m leaning slightly towards Ghost at the moment, but I’m just wondering what platforms others are using that I might have overlooked. Thanks!
