The internet was designed to be decentralized and enable individuals to publish and share information online. And since 2003, the open source blogging platform “Wordpress” continues to power a whopping 35% of the entire web. Still the word “blog” brings about ideas of souped-up recipe sites that are optimized to increase ad revenue rather than accessibility. However, on an internet dominated by consolidated mega-platforms hell bent on keeping you on their website at all costs, building a personal site or blog is independent publishing. Learn how to publish content on your own personal blog and connect it to an rss feed reader.
