Medium Just Became an Even Worse Option for Blogging

Medium Just Became an Even Worse Option for Blogging:

This reinforces my recommendation regarding writing online:

  1. Keep everything on your own site as much as possible.
  2. Use very few third-party services, and ideally none. This means anything that involves third-party domains that you don’t control fully.
  3. Your domain is everything. It’s your center of truth going forward for decades. Protect that source of truth.

So whether it’s Facebook, Medium, Tumblr—whatever—stop that, and get on your own domain.
Your domain is your home, and anything you do away from there will end up hurting you when it either 1) goes away, or 2) changes management and starts doing things you don’t like and cannot accept.
Do. As much as possible. On your own domain.

I totally agree … except I would advise using something IndieWeb-based to syndicate your posts to the social networks to draw more readers back to your own site.

Be nice with what you write.
