This site is hosted at https://micro.blog, a microblogging system for those who want to control their content. It’s reasonably priced, and even has an option for hosting micro podcasts. Micro.blog is super low-friction in terms of usage, making it easy to post your thoughts quickly.
- format your posts and pages with markdown
- cross post to Mastodon, Linkedin and others

- enjoy a social networking aspect, without likes and re-posts, just conversation
- use emojis as a new kind of tag
- keep a list of books you’re reading
- customize your blog design and use plugins to get extra functionality
