It’s the first Wednesday of the month again, time for a post for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group.
Some marketing gurus urge writers to have their own online domain (e. g http://olgagodim.com). They say it is more professional, but I don’t have one. I blog on WordPress.com and I’m happy with the platform. It has all the features I require for my site and blog. Many others blog on Blogger, which I don’t like as much, for various reasons, but both platforms have an advantage of being old (relatively) and free of bugs (almost). Thousands of blogs using both platforms have already forced their developers to clean up the code.
Occasionally, I log on to some writer’s site hosted someplace else, with its own unique programming. Such sites are frequently original or funky, but more often than not, they cause my computer to hiccup or freeze altogether. I try to avoid such sites, even if the writers seem interesting. It’s bad for both them and me; we both lose the connection. To avoid such a conundrum with my own blog, I decided to stick to WordPress.
What do you think? What other platforms, well developed and free of glitches, do you know? Use?
