I choose Hashnode because of below reasons.
- Its cloud hosted & Free of cost
- Supports Markdown which i am more familiar with
- Built in social share
- Lightweight & Faster
Even tho WordPress offers Hosted service for free via WordPress.com, and the rest of the feature that i mentioned above can be added to WordPress using some plugins, but that never going to make the site lightweight & faster.
In the early days WordPress was actually known to run personal blog and itself had a tagline
"Blog Platform" . currently WordPress seems to be a platform where any kind of website can be created using WordPress itself as base.
This doesn't mean i hate wordpress.
i still ❤️ to use WordPress & will be developing plugins for it.
What i love about Hashnode ?
I love many things about Hashnode. it offers everything built & reduces the time it takes to setup a personal blog site
I mainly like the support for Markdown Editor. as a open source developer who mainly works a lot in GitHub repositories and writing
wiki using Markdown. using the same Hashnode will make things even more easier.
