@gr36 I know, I know. That being said moving to micro.blog has allowed me to add really cool things like conversation buttons and tinylytics without having to slog through the robust code and theme files for WordPress sites. Micro.blog makes that easy to do. There is also something to be said about how Micro.blog makes posting simple posts without a title way less annoying or frustrating than WordPress.
I understand the sentiment of focusing on the content is what matters, but nesting a little bit and picking a platform you can feel at home with seems worth it to me.
