I'm not sure whether to be annoyed or to be amused at how quickly the fundraiser started and how quickly they declared it's end.
But I see alot of people jumping over to #weblogit but guess what? It's not available on android and that's like the biggest problem la! 😅 (Sorry I love my Huawei)
I'm not sure where I'll move to if I will! But for now, IG and Facebook seems like a staple in my life. So follow me on IG if you wanna be a part of my future life ♥️
Can some rich person buy over Dayre? 😅
I think everyone is just rushing to move now, because they don't wanna be left behind, but I think that we still have some time and starting on a whole new platform isn't something that you should just….do?
Haha like the whole weblogit thing. Have you tried it enough to know that it's good? It doesn't even have an android app so who knows how frequently the platform will be maintained, bugs will be removed and updates will be released?
My pick? WordPress
Let me just start by saying, I've been blogging on WordPress for a long time, even before Dayre 😅
You can find me there @braintango too!
And here are some of my reasons why I'm probably gonna just move back.
I already see some of you on WordPress!!!
Am so happy to see familiar names there. 🍑🍑🍑
I promise you, even tho wordpress seems excessive for now, it takes decades to build a good site and you know one when you see one.
And wordpress is definitely well built!
Unlike blogs, wordpress is actually kind of like a social media platform. It comes with a news feed so you know what and when someone you follow updates!
You can also comment, like and chit chat!
I really like the feed feature. 😅
Also, you can see the number of people who liked and commented.
Which I find was a huge part of dayre!
You can post, and then stop, and then update it again
I think what people liked about Dayre was how you could post in chunks…so for example, you have an image, you update it and then add a caption and come back to it later.
Um…you can do it on WordPress too. You just start a post and update it as you go along!
No word limit, insert all the images you want, whenever you want.
Just create a new post…and publish it, even if it's not done yet.
Click on edit when you wanna add a new photo or text update…
And then you can update your post!
A solid mobile app and backing
Ok tbh, after Dayre and getting my life's work (ok la 1 year of posts) being trampled on and then thrown away like it's worth nothing (hello @blog, yes, thank you for the wonderful time, but throwing your users into the firepit is a huge dickmove)
I'm only going with apps that have a good long history and solid financial backing.
WordPress is one of them. They are used by businesses everywhere and they even have WordPress.org for big enough users that have their own servers…so….
Always feels safer when there's a solid money making plan behind the business right?
Sadly, wordpress only gives us 3gb of storage (which is quite a lot if you don't upload obscenely high Res images) but you can pay about $4 a month to up that 6gb and pay more for more storage.
I'm currently on the $4 a month plan and paid for it for a year! and also paid for themes previously hehe.
You can add links, type in chunks and…not add captions to photos
Which is something that should have been the basic functions of a microblogging app? 😅
But then again, yes, if you're looking forward to these, you will love wordpress. Haha I know I am la!
Replying to comments in a thread that makes logical sense is also possible and much easier,
Plus you can like comments. Sieve out likes and comments so you don't miss out comments.
Comments are also PENDING your approval so JERKS cannot leave asshole remarks on your posts 😅 unless you let them.
