It’s easy to be lazy these days and give up on the decentralized property of the Internet. You can find pretty much everything that requires more than a minute to set up “as a service”. I hadn’t self-hosted my blog for years. What prompted me to go back to self-hosting from Medium?
Tracking of readers was a concern but didn’t bothered me enough to make the effort of self-hosting. I was increasingly frustrated about not having control over the layout of my posts, not being able to embed code without having to embed a GitHub Gist. And since Medium isn’t monetized yet, I had some uncertainties about the future of the platform.
Welcome to this new home.
Note: Previous blog posts will stay on Medium.
