The irony of this is not lost on me – after a decade of avoiding Google I’m now going to start posting on Google owned Blogger again because this WordPress blog is still getting very little traffic since Google black listed it back in 2016, and I’ve become disillusioned with blockchain sites like Steemit, Hive, and Blurt over the past few years due to insider corruption and ever decreasing engagement and payouts…
This WordPress site www.frot.co.nz is self hosted and should be pretty censorship resistant, up to a point. I plan to keep posting here, but in these stressful and complex times I feel like giving fast and easy Blogger another go.
I started out on Blogger long ago with this post, and I’ve always liked the way the platform works. After trying out every other platform under the sun since then, I have come around to thinking “Oh fuck it, I don’t like Google, but I use Android every day, so maybe I’ll step down from my righteous pedestal and start posting on Blogger again”
The first thing I find is that it hasn’t changed at all, and it’s still fun and easy to use. OK Google, you got me, it’s a great blogging site for concentrating on creating content, and if you can manage to not censor me or shut the platform down I’ll start posting here again.
