This is my first post on this platform. Recently I lost my (free) host for my WordPress website, and I decided to change to a static webpage hosted via GitHub Pages. I did this so I wouldn’t have to worry about crap hosting (like 000craphost) or having a server running in my house. I never really used my blog, but I was thinking about hosting one anyways, just so I could. I was checking Hacker News when I stumbled upon this post and read through it. And when able.bio supports custom domains, I’ll be changing mine to https://blog.minenash.com.
Simple set up
Not having to have any computer on in my house 24/7
Not having to rely on anyone’s good faith to host for me
Not having to go through a host that doesn’t have good uptime
Want to promote a better-faith competitor to medium
