Two important questions to ask yourself before you start your blog

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:

  1. 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?
  2. 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.
