Gosh. Shock horror. I left

I guess, it was an easy decision after they stopped their custom domain approval process for a “short review”.

Psst! Still waiting, guys!

I’ve been eager to find something better, so I’ve decided to give Svtble a go. On first look, they haven’t the foggiest idea how to spell subtle, but boy do they sure know how to pull off subtle.

The editor uses Markdown, which is a nice change from Medium’s rich text monolith. This keeps my posts simple, and my editing lag and distraction free.

If I’m going to complain about anything, it’s the lack of space for author pages. I’d like this to replace my website, but unfortunately it may need to live at a subdomain—I’m undecided.

I’ve migrated only some of my better blog posts across to Svbtle with the intention of writing more as I go along.
