Of all platforms in all the world, you picked the shittiest one?Au contraire, WordPress is always the shittiest.
Like, WordPress is less shitty.
Like, LiveJournal is less shitty.Hi yes, I'm a big girl now. I haven't been 18 in... 5 years? Besides, is there even anyone left on LJ these days
Rails' example is less shittyI take that back. Rails is always the shittiest. Ugh. Maybe one day I will write a rant about Ruby when I feel like dealing with a bunch of code "artisans" or ninjas, but today is not that day.
I would have hosted any solution for you and even done the admin partBut this way nobody has to do the admin part except some underpaid slave at Google! Managing a blog is only free if your time has no value; I wouldn't subject anyone I cared about to that kind of masochistic torture, especially the torture of maintaining WordPress, aka "certified pre-0wned."
You mean besides the fact they make money off you by putting in ads and pay you none of it?My rants aren't a profit-making enterprise, ffs. Let them profit off it in exchange for me nor anyone else I care about not having to maintain a blog platform.
Besides the fact it forces your readers to sign in with Google to comment, not allowing OpenID or Disqus any other federated login?Disqus is ugh, and
Besides the fact none of their templates work correctly on mobile and you have to write your own HTML and CSS if you want those visits which are 60% of web traffic these days?Looks fine on my phone, dunno what you're on about.
Besides the fact it isn't HTML compliant and fails egregiously on any validator.Adorable, you think WordPress pages are any better.
Besides the fact they slipstream analytics even when you don't want them and disable them?You got me there, but I'm too lazy to care.
I mean, TypePad, Tumblr, jesus fuck anything is better than BloggerNever heard of TypePad. I don't want to be associated with tumblr or its poisonous, self-defeating culture of SJW's.
I guess it boils down to one thing:
I just don't give a fuck.
