If you wanted to publish a blogpost and couldn't selfhost your blog, would you rather use someones WriteFreely instance or someones Plume instance to host your blog and why?

DE:
Wenn ihr einen Blogpost veröffentlichen wolltet, aber ihr nicht die Möglichkeit habt es selbst zu hosten, würdet ihr lieber eine WriteFreely Instanz oder eine Plume Instanz nutzen und wieso?

@ziffy I currently use WriteFreely, but I'm not sure what all the advantages/disadvantages are of either one, would have to research further!

@ziffy from the plume website joinplu.me: "Currently, Plume developers have less time and Plume is not actively maintained. New features may take time to be implemented. Could you consider similar purpose software: WriteFreely, WordPress with ActivityPub plugin and so on?"

@ziffy For many already owned #wordpress blogs ( something around ~milions people) the easiest solution could be just fediverse-enabling their blog with #activitypub #plugin

@ziffy I'm not familiar with #WriteFreely or #Plume. Right now my blogging drug is self-hosted #Wordpress. Which of these new things would be easier to port to? Can either be self-hosted on a LAMP stack? For better or for worse, it's the only form of hosting industry offering I can even begin to understand the pricing mechanics of.

@n8chz @ziffy You might want to consider using the ActivityPub plugin for wordpress.

@oklomsy @ziffy Already there at @lori . The one post on that feed is the one post I wrote after installing the plugin. Is there some tweak in settings that would liberate the others? Either way, I'm quite happy with the plugin.

@n8chz @ziffy @lori I don't know how to use Wordpress or the ActivityPub plugin so I can't really provide any help on that unfortunately.
