    thanks for sharing, such a valuable information

  • You might want to include the free and open source http://getgrav.org/ – In a couple of months it’ll have very promising admin panel: http://getgrav.org/blog/admin-plugin-development

    • Ah, didn’t come across that one. Thanks for sharing!

    I’d suggest including Jekyll, GitHub’s leading (and blog aware) static site generator. It’s a great alternative to CMS’s or hosted solutions. http://jekyllrb.com/

    All that said, this is an incredible item for fledglings who need useable, adjustable formats and a truly decent UI that bails them lay out their ideal email. I don’t have any involvement with their client administration.

  • what about medium platform? it is quite simple to use and it is minimalist model.

    • Medium definitely is a great platform, no doubt about that. For this piece we were focusing on services that work as standalone blogs, whereas Medium has a whole social network component built into the platform, so it isn’t the best choice for publishing on something that feels 100% like your own unique blog.

      Admittedly the same thing can be said of Tumblr which made it onto the list, but the social components can be kept to a minimum there.

    Your description of wordpress is confusing even for me; I have an independent blog host but the learning curve is steep. The difference is wordpress.org is a content management system for someone with a blog host and wordpress.com IS the Bloghost with content management system built in! For newbies, this is very confusing.

    Medium is also a great alternative thats missing.

    I started this one: https://www.responsate.com
    It is hosted, minimalistic, without customization and combines (micro)blogging, question & answer and social news (link sharing and voting like on reddit).
    I am trying to build a community, I’d be glad if you try it out!

    blog platform on megasasta.com allows you to write your own blog free and also to earn directly from it by giving advertisement in its body.

    Here’s one that I’ve fallen in love with: https://www.jotflow.com

    It is minimal, fully free, markdown based, clutter free and beautiful.
