My first 200 blog posts with Write.as
This is the 200th post over 10 months of my blog hosted at Write.as. The milestone is even more significant considering I published 146 posts over 3 years to my previous blog hosted at the bloated, inflexible, and clunky old Blogger.
I credit the milestone in large part to Write.as, a lightweight blogging platform that nearly eliminates friction with its Markdown support and minimalist design.
Typing into the Write.as editing area is all it takes to insert, format, and present the content of a post. With Blogger, even basic text formatting requires laboriously moving and clicking the mouse to select text, click icons, pick menu items, and apply formatting. It all adds up to enough friction to dread the experience and be discouraged from posting.
