The only rule of blogging: buy the domain
Nothing else matters. It doesn’t matter what web framework - Wordpress, or the latest thing in Rust. It doesn’t matter who hosts it - S3, or your Raspberry Pi.
If you don’t own the domain, you don’t own the links.
If you don’t own the links, you don’t own the content.
You might in a legal sense
Over the last year, I’ve expended considerable effort to fix my past errors.
I used to blog on Medium. It used to be nice. Its black serif text on white background hinted at a simplicity that today is all but lost.
Do not confuse me for an NIH.
You might have content that you don’t think of as content. Old posts on Reddit. Move ‘em over. Example: phone screen brightness
