A heartbeat post

I'm writing this post just to keep my blog alive. I miss the ease of Blogger, but I don't miss the tiny audiences that Blogger now brings. I don't miss the algorithms that limit my reach. I don't miss the lack of a useful backup, either.

Nowadays, I write my blogs in Markdown on StackEdit, an browser based Markdown Editor. StackEdit makes it easy for me to backup my blogs. Then I past that into my blog at Steemit.com. Steemit doesn't have an algorithm that limits my reach like Facebook and Google Plus. I also cross-post at Medium.com, and as far as I can tell, they don't limit my reach, either.

I don't know what it is, but Medium makes it easy for me to read for an hour if I want to do that. They seem to be thinking bigger at both Steemit and Medium, but at Medium, I can look at my feed and find articles I want to read at the top. Steemit requires a bit more effort to find them, but I can find them.

Anyway, if you want to find my content, I'm there on Medium and Steemit, two places that don't limit propagation based on a political agenda.

Have a great day. :)
