Why so Many Publishing Platforms?
For long-time readers and followers, they know that I own a few websites or publishing places (see a full list here). With so many places to publish to, you might wonder why not use only one big blog on WordPress? Well, I’m glad you asked. You’ll find most of the answers on the following diagram.
As you can see, each place fills a different role. Think of them as publishing channels. I prefer to have many focused places with content directed to a specific crowd over having a single channel full of seemingly unrelated posts. But there is more to it: I love using different tools and services. Each have their strengths and weakness, a specific set of features. That’s the thing that drives me the most for using different publishing platforms.
