The Web is Too Complex

The web has become too difficult for the average person. The whole idea of self-hosting or easy publishing of your site or content is largely gone. WordPress is way too complicated to install and use. Proprietary site builders lock your content away into their systems. The cost of having your own presence is getting out of control and driving the average hobbiest away.

I’ve switched over to micro.blog (using my own domain) as a way to take back some control. It’s $5/month, including custom domain mapping. The content is stored in an easy-to-export format. The templates are simple and easy.

We need less of web3 and more of a return to the web that we had in the late 90’s.
