Ending an experiment

Earlier this year I started cross-posting from this blog to Facebook and Medium. I’m not no longer doing that.Here’s why.First, if you put the two of them together, you’d have a great blogging surface. Medium handles linking, styles and titles. No podcasts, but that’s the fourth item on the list for a reason. Most of my posts don’t have podcasts attached. If there was one must-have feature I could live without that’s the one (though giving up podcasting is giving up a huge win in interop). And Facebook handles updates, so if I make a change to a post after initially publishing it, those changes percolate to the Facebook version. So if you add the two together you get pretty close to the ideal.But Facebook doesn’t do links, styling, titles or podcasts. And Medium doesn’t do updates.I gave both a good shot, but the tradeoffs just aren’t worth it.It’s true
