I made my own blog for several reasons, Which I’m going to describe them for you in a few lines.
Content sharing systems are all over the place: Meduim, Virgool and so on. Of course they have their own benefits like search engine acceleration or recommendation systems but I found their problems more than their benefits as they’ve got all the power and they can decide to ask you for money to read articles written by other people who published them for free, as you can see in Medium. It’s a problem. The business plan seems clearly unfair. There is no guarantee which your content stays safe and free.
Then where should we write? my answer is on our notebooks, and blogs to share. Everything started with this idea which my blog may help a human being. I may make a change and positive effect on my world. I may give an idea to a teenager who is scheduling his/her life. I think we should talk, we should argue, that’s a way to grow. I’m always grateful for the people who stood up for their ideas.
Last reason is personal, I also try to keep all the content in English which helps me to improve my skills in English and it’s fun for me to share content that worth sharing and my interests with people in a simple, cozy and personal place far away from shiny filters and bear ears.
