The Best Way To Blog?
I’ve been a blogger, on and off, for several years. I’ve tried a number of popular platforms, and settled on Wordpress.
However, I like the Medium format, and how it emphasizes readers rather than simply just hits. I feel this leads to more possible interaction and commenting.
Now I’m not sure which way to go. I have blogs on my own domains which is good for personal branding of course.
I see a number of ways I could go.
- Post on my personal blog, and link to Medium. Downside is the extra clickcould discourage people from clicking through to my blog from Medium.
- Post on my blog, and copy the content in full to Medium. Is there any point in that though?
- Give up my own blog, and just use Medium. Then I’m left with one or more ‘ dead’ blogs sitting on my domains.
I’m not, at this stage, sure of which method is best. At least on my own blog, I have more control of the content, whereas Medium could close down, and I could lose my posts.
I think more reading of what others have done is in order.
