I triumphantly tweeted my new website address the other day and the backlash was swift.
“Look at my new website!” I chirped.
Then to show my new, cool, website-owning chops, I complained about WordPress.
(Just to add that Tweet I had to fiddle around in the blocks menu for five seconds).
My colleague Brady Dale made his displeasure known immediately.
Pride wounded, I put on a brave face and asked what he would have done differently. What followed was a list of interesting publishing options that I intend to try out at some point.
So here’s a list of ’em:
- Blot — Super minimal thing that turns things in directories into blog posts. US$4 a month. High on the list.
- Ghost — Probably more than I need right now. But I had two votes for this, including from Larry Salibra.
- Jekyll — Turning plain text into websites. This makes me think of Roam and it also feeds my markdown urges.
Shoutout to Julien Genestoux who’s telling me to put premium content behind his super-cool NFT paywall Unlocked Protocol. It will happen, Julien, but bear with this WordPress-using noob for now.Tags: CRM Publishing Tools Unlock Protocol Web Wordpress
