Places I’ve been lately.
Yeah I know I’ve been neglecting this blog, but I’ve been blogging other places. Mostly my radio3.io linkblog. Radio3 is a service that posts links directly to an RSS feed and Twitter, and it’s the simplest service I’ve seen in a while. The fact that you can open up a bookmarklet, write a description, (if it’s longer than 140 characters, it doesn’t get tweeted,) and click “submit” and it goes directly to the feed is epic! No themes to deal with at all, since ya know, it’s just rss. So here’s my Radio3 feed clicky clicky, and see all my random links.
After a link gets posted to Radio3 it goes to my Micro.blog site which is: https://micro.blog/hope I really like micro.blog, it’s a federated and open version of Twitter, because it’s based on something Twitter doesn’t do, RSS.
I also set up 1999.io, but haven’t been able to get it to work yet. Don’t get me wrong, I think WP still has it’s place for business blogs. It’s flexible and powerful, and provides you with whatever plugins and themes you want to use, (everything under the sun.) If you just want simple, no-frills blogging though, services like this are the way to go.
I’m thinking about using one of these simple services for my personal blog, whether I pay for a micro.blog site, or just switch to a different CMs that’s just a blog platform, I really don’t know yet.
