You may have noticed the recent movement of people looking to get off Medium. Most of us are motivated by a desire to own our content, have data portability and get more control over how/where our content is displayed and monetized. Most importantly many of us consider our blog/site to be a core part of our online identity and while Medium offers a fantastic writing experience it sacrifices other important values. Luckily there's a modern approach to running your blog which aligns with these ideals, its called the JAMstack and its all around us.
Own your data by storing it in a git repo and/or managing it with a Headless CMS, continuously integrate and deploy your website using Netlify and get a design and a website provisioned in 60 seconds with Stackbit. You can easily get by with free usage tiers or pay a reasonable fee for a higher level of service. Most importantly you control your data, how it's deployed and where it's used and you can always switch services without any sacrifice.
