I post to my wordpress.com blog all the freakin’ time. I used to post to my blogger.com blog all the freakin’ time, but I got tired of playing with it and wanted something new. That’s when I switched to wordpress.com.
I used blogger constantly for a little over four years. I’ve been using wordpress.com constantly for a little under four years.
It it time to change again? I don’t know. I want something different but I haven’t the slightest clue what I want. I hate when I feel like this. I want everything I could do with blogger, and everything I could do with wordpress.com, but I want it all to be different, easier, cooler, and well just better.
If I want to post a picture, I want to post a picture.
And if I want to pull a picture from my Flickr account I absolutely should be able to.

I mean… what the hell? It’s Flickr for crying out loud. It’s the oldest social site still active. Let me host my damn pictures there!
Every time I think it’s time to start using Medium, I get to this point and go back to wordpress.com. I have tens of thousands of images hosted at Flickr. No blog platform is going to stop me from using it, even if Yahoo/Verizon is a disgusting mess. (note, I am not talking about moving my blogging idiocy to tumblr… can you guess why?)
Svbtle looks really good, but it’s not free. Ghost looks amazing but it’s not only not free, it costs $29 a month for the lowest tier service. Not in this lifetime. I’m not blogging for a living or trying to make money. I just like writing stupid crap and posting it online.
Medium should be the one. I LOVE the way things look on these pages. I also, unfortunately, love posting music and photos and I don’t like the things Medium makes me do to get them into a post. Hell, can I even post music?
Just look at all those embeds that don’t work. I could throw a little research at this and maybe find out what I need to do, but either it won’t work or the work won’t be worth it.
Damn it. Medium just doesn’t do what I need it to do. So what other options do I have? I hate this. I need a change and nothing is doing it for me. Damn it!
