These are my favorite blogging platforms and tools

All of these services are subscription-based and privacy-friendly. Let me know if you need help setting up your blog. I’d love to help as a fellow blogger.


  • The most affordable blogging platform on the web. Publish for free or pay $9 yearly for custom domain. Great support from the developer.

Bear Blog

  • Minimal blogging platform. For premium features like custom domain and analytics, pay $5 per month or $48 per year. Possibly the best choice if you’re looking for a simple blog with some stylization options.


  • Imagine Mastodon + Blogging. The best choice if you’re looking for a communal way of publishing both short and long form content. The platform has an active community of people who’ve escaped from big tech social media. offers two premium plans: $5 or $10 per month.


  • My choice of markdown editor. I like its minimal design, features like focus mode, and customization options like different themes. To me, $15 price tag is reasonable(much cheaper than iA writer). If you’re looking for a free option, there’s Marktext.


  • Free end-to-end encrypted file sharing tool. Wormhole just works like magic.
