although I've been using hatena for a pretty long time to document things (not on this page) I'm still unsure about how I feel about it as a platform. It's a little clunky and hard to navigate cuz not fully translated and I can't read japanese but also there are pretty much no english speaking users. I like the simplicity of it though and that I can embed things from a lot of different websites
I also don't really like the default mobile layout and also that you can't change it. but it's the best "blogging" platform that I know of because it has an app and everything's kinda straightforward dunno what I really mean by that but it's good.
Blogger/blogspot used to have an app but it kinda just disappeared. also it's owned by Google and they have a bad rep of dropping services randomly so I doubt it's going to stay for long. it's pretty defunct as it is now actually. I remember making fucking club penguin cheats blogs and acting so cool like I had a website or whatever when really I was like 10 and should have been supervised a lot stricter on the internet.
Tumblr is also a pretty big option. I think most people have chosen it, but I don't really like it as a "blogging" (hate that word) platform because of the general reputation that Tumblr has gathered on the internet, and I'm not fond of the whole resharing feature that it has. It's skewed further towards a social media thing especially recently because last time I checked you can now reply on posts instead of like manually resharing and adding a comment and it's like eh, I'm here to write random shit not to make friends.
Wow I just wrote a lot of bullshit about blogging but it's like it shouldnt be that hard to find a place where I can just write shit and enjoy myself. Blogging is just not that big anymore because who the fuck is gonna take the time to scroll through and read your blog when they can go to your twitter or something. There's not a lot of demand for it.
anyway I would've written this more sophisticatedly but i Really don't care and I can edit it whatevvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
