Since offering a reward for people to start a blog, a dozen people have sent me emails and mastodon messages asking me to pay up for the blog they created two months ago, or accept their lazy 100 word article about how they set up their "blog", or for their non-technical blog about being discriminated against for their flavor of the week and I'm a priviledged asshole for not giving them money to support their flavor...

Listen. Don't be that guy. You're ruining a good thing.

@sir I've set up so many blogs in my day, from something tumblr-based long ago to static site gens. I'm so lazy now I just rsync plaintext files to my server. gopher support out of the box! plaintext is future tech.
