[So, of course, after I make this move some developments occur that suggest now is not the time to shift the platform. Don't get me wrong, Postach.io is awesome! However, WordPress sites do make up 19% of the Internet...]
I am always tweaking. That includes this blog, including its purpose, content, form, etc. I have been debating WordPress (its current home) v. Tumblr on features versus simplicity.
Recently, I discovered Postach.io — a blogging platform powered by the Evernote platform. Draft a post in Evernote, tag it “published” and, voilà, a blog post is born. Since I heavily use Evernote to manage my world, this makes sense. I have been siding with simplicity whenever possible.
The new home for this blog is: perspectiveburton.postach.io.
Yes, Postach.io is not as tested as WordPress. The beautiful thing is that if the developers fall on their face — which hopefully does not occur — all of the posts are stored in my Evernote account. The development team has caught the eye of Evernote, and it makes me think that this platform has a Skitch or Penultimate-type future in the Evernote family.
I am going to keep perspectiveburton.com live until I can migrate posts to the new platform (the migration tool is in progress). I am sure that I am violating some rule of blogging by doing this — there is probably a post somewhere called “10 Reasons You Can’t Keep Your Blog on Two Platforms at Once (Even Temporarily) or Risk the Apocalypse.”
There is an RSS feed icon on the new site to get updates, plus social media. If you currently get new posts via email for this blog, that same feature does not seem to exist on Postach.io yet. Besides, the lack of an email feature may be doing the world a favor by reducing additional emails into our ecosystem.
Postach.io is quickly developing out its features and has several themes available. Initially, I am going with the default theme because I like its feel compared to the others. I will be adding all the existing features in the near future.
I dig the innovative, entrepreneurial vibe of Postach.io.
Thanks for continuing to read the stuff I spew out here.
