Well, today is finally the day I’m announcing my departure from medium.com and migrating to my own blog being hosted over at GitHub Pages. There are many reasons for the transition, but the big ones come down to:
- Medium is simply not a very good platform for technical blogs. Code samples are too hard to do and the gist support is a joke.
- It seems every time I log in to start writing a new blog, the interface has changed; and seldom for the better. I do not want to have to learn how to use the editor every time I want to write a blog.
- Better control over what my site and content looks like.
So with that, good-bye Medium, hello owensd.io.
