      I've loved Medium for a long time - in fact I still hear from people (other authors wanting to link/interview me, prospective clients, etc.) every singe month directly from my very first Medium post.

      Medium on mobile is...so-so. Much better than the original app, but the nature of a content network means there's a ton to fit on a small screen's UX.

      My only real issue with the app is the writing interface (which should be Medium's strongest point if the website is any indication). It's reminiscent of the beloved Medium writing interface, but some of the features

      It was good, but now it forces itself to die: - It has too many UI distractions (popups) - Its comment section is one of the useless UX on the industry. - In comment detail page, you see related articles list instead of the responses first. - Constantly (more than 50% of the time) suggests premium articles on your feed and you cant opt out - It constantly shows you premium articles which you have to pay. You can not opt out. Premium articles are also on google search list, so you can open premium article without knowing which decreases your premium article monthly read limit

    Ghost

    Blogging and Publishing. Free. Open. Simple.

    My personal go-to. Open source, but if you want you can opt for them to host it and manage all the nitty gritty details. Big fan of it's minimal markdown editor.

      I tried running the open source version of Ghost on my Mac but decided to go with Ghost Pro. I love it! The design is simple and intuitive. Plus I love that using Ghost Pro means I support the open source community. Great team building this product!

    I like Hugo, Jekyll, Pelican, Ghost, Medium, all for different reasons, but WordPress is still number one thanks to its community and vast array of plugins.

    I used WP for 5 years before switching over and I've never looked back. You set it up and never have to worry about updates, hiring designers or developers. It's so simple to use but still works beautifully.

    When it comes to tools to actually write and publish to your chosen platform, I love using this app, especially with Wordpress blogs.

    Jekyll 2.0

    Transform your plain text into static websites and blogs.

    I love Jekyll. You have to know some code / be tech savvy to use it. Can write posts in markdown and easily publish a static site. With Jekyll you "own" everything - isn't on someone else's platform. Can use github flow with pull requests to change content (or have readers fix typos for you).
