Good website builders for alterhuman blog


 Share

Recommended Posts

So I keep seeing many alterhumans, therians, otherkin, plural systems and fictionkin out there making blogs dedicated to themselves.

 

 

And.. I'm struggling to find good website builder for a blog to myself, so, do you have any recommendations? Appreciate it if you have your own and your sharing the site you used.

For making blogs specifically, we've seen people have success with these platforms:

Tumblr

Probably the most populr blogging platform, Tumblr is free to create accounts on and use. You can make side blogs each dedicated to a specific topic, or just keep everything on your main.

WordPress

A quieter blogging platform, Wordpress is both website-builder/host as well as a blogging platforms. The Silver Elves, one of the groups the otherkin community traces its roots back to, posts their content here.

Dreamwidth

An old-school online journal where you can post your own content to both your main journal and separate group pages. I know some fictionkin have been trying to migrate to this platform to revitalize the community, away from anti-kin and KFFers.

 

If you mean more general websites (copy-pasted from a a guide we're making to building personal websites):

 

Caard.

For small, one-page sites, Caard has your back. Caard comes with plenty of templates, works on all platforms (desktop, tablet, mobile, etc.), and is probably familiar-- it's already commonly used for About pages! It's also free, but has a Pro option for $19/year if you find yourself needing something more substantial or want to get rid of the very small and non-intrusive (Made with Caard) advertisement posted at the bottom of every page.

Neocities.

Looking to get down and dirty with HTML and CSS? Neocities is a free web hosting service that offers up to 1 GB of space, and complete control over your website-- though you cannot upload video, music, compressed, or executable files on the basic version. Basic HTML is a must, as Neocities prides itself on offering no pre-formatted website templates, but it has free, basic tutorials that can help you along the way. Has a Subscriber option for $5/month which offers 50 GBs of storage, no upload type restrictions, and custom domain support if the free plan just isn't what you're looking for. (We use this option, with our website
.)

Weebly.

Weebly is a free website-builder and hosting service that offers both website templates and CSS/HTML support, as well as a drag-and-drop website builder. Works on all platforms. You do have to deal with an ugly "powered by Weebly" advertisement stuck at the bottom of your website's pages if you're not willing to pay $16/month for its Professional option, though.

Wix.

Another free website-builder and hosting service that offers website templates, though unlike Weebly HTML/CSS support is only offered to Premium websites. Works on all platforms. Your website will be haunted by a large Wix advertisement that sticks to the top of your website pages unless you purchase the a plan, the cheapest being $14/month.

Wordpress.

A classic, Wordpress is used to host the famous WereLibrary and offers website themes and templates-- though it's probably best known for its built-in blog functionality, something which isn't to be underestimated. You'll be stuck with another stickied advertisement at the top of your website's pages, though, unless you upgrade to at least the Personal plan for $4/month.
