Excursions

Rethinking stuff...

It is a different sort of day today. Things are very different. I mean what’s with the lonliness within? It needn’t be this way, but this can’t be helped I guess. Anyway.

I am also very much reconsider the way I publish. Am back to thinking the “no-editor” interface is blot is not something I really find attractive at times. Everything is good. But a lack of a nice interface to write and publish does make me look out for alternatives. And WordPress always comes first - mainly due to the web app.

I also looked at Ghost again. This line in its comparison to WordPress left be curios.

If you’re looking for a platform that increasingly attempts to do everything and don’t mind cutting through the noise to make it work for your publishing needs, then WordPress might be suitable for you.

- Ghost vs WordPress

Is that a positive or negative? Plus according to Ghost, WordPress costs “average managed hosting starts at $115/mo”. That sounds too high. Don’t WordPress plans start from $5/mo?

Anyway, I will continue to explore stuff. Time for change again, maybe?

Another benefit is edit-on-the-go. Fixing issues with post is so much simpler with WordPress. Not with anything else.

The edit on the go is especially more powerful on desktop! I mean it opens up the editor and you can just add the text. It indeed is very powerful option. The editor is one reason I want to really consider WordPress – even if I have to pay for it. I haven’t finalized it yet though. The biggest deterrent for me is the lack of easy way to add IndieWeb support. I am yet sure if I can live without these – mainly webmentions and syndication.
