New start of 2018

One of my 2018 new year resolutions is to pick up the writing habit.


The process of gluing random thoughts before they form a solid idea always fascinates me. And putting something in the written format is a good way to exercising my understanding and articulation on ideas.


However, what irks me most is to choose the right blogging service that works. It’s not easy-pissy. Generally I am looking for blog services in these criteria:


  1. Services that won’t shut down in 20 years
  2. Super clean design that’s text-heavy content focused, not media
  3. Compact – small font and fewer padding
  4. Adaptive to both long essay and 2~3 sentence snippet
  5. Easy to archive, find archives, and tagging
  6. Light navigation
  7. Light level of code customization

Medium or Tumblr are a bit trendy and I suspect its longevity. Twitter or weibo sounds good for documentation of quick thoughts, but it’s a noisy place (entertainments, followers, ads, rich medias, etc.). Wix or Squarespace are good for image presentation…


Now I am back to WordPress since it’s been there for a long time and still one of the most visited site in the world.


Happy 2018!
