Because WP remains vulnerable, I won't revisit hosting my own any day soon. Also, I'm done with "content farms-mills" forever (where freelancers mass-produce necessarily blah SEOd articles on whatever's getting searched)--though I proved to myself I could earn just enough that way, key-tap-dancing a few to several hours a day, anonymously, of course.
Recently I joined Tsu and find it okay. Today I joined Ello and agree it's pretty.
So, I'm finding it okay too, so far. At least posts can be edited and deleted there, unlike at Tsu.
To be continued...
