I shared this on Mastodon earlier, and thought I’d re-share it here too.
#PSA: The many recent (and no so recent) articles advocating for more people to #blog are wonderful. Just be mindful of which service you choose to build your blog on.
❓ Here are some questions to ask yourself when you select a blogging service/host:
- Can you conveniently migrate your content away from the service if you decide to make a change down the line? Or does the service effectively lock you down once you’re all set up?
- See 1. above.
⚠️ Setting up your own site is easier than ever. So is falling into a trap where some services make it really difficult for you to ever move away if you decide to.
What do you think?
