Want to run a blog on the Fediverse, which people can follow from Mastodon etc?

There are several platforms which let you do this:

#Blogs #Blogging #Medium #Alternatives #Wordpress
 
@ida Good pointer, thanks!

The reason I stopped using the market leader long time ago is that their pitiful attempts at personalisation made me nuts. I was getting wrong results in wrong language in a wrong country.

So, now I should head on straight to #Medium, right? :)
 
One night a while ago #Medium annoyed me enough that I made a browser extension to fix all the "engagement" / nag UX.

Today I launched a little site for it:
 
The blogging platform #Plume aims to be a federated open source alternative to #Medium, and is under active development.

It's still at a pre-Alpha stage, but you can get regular updates from the lead developer at @BaptisteGelez (the account is on a Plume instance but it federates through #ActivityPub, so you can follow it on Mastodon etc).

There's a demo Plume instance at:

#Blogging #Blogs #Alternatives
 
Cool. There's a new #activitypub platform for blogging called #plume, meant to be an alternative to #medium. This could be a pretty big deal, because it means orgs can go all in on the #fediverse. They can have a #mastodon/#pleroma acct for quick communication and host their blog on plume instead of medium and all of it will federate, so users can choose how to follow and communicate with them.

Mastodon could get their blog off medium and @deadsuperhero can get #wedistribute onto the fediverse.
