Right now I have none. for 20 years or more I thought about having one, but since there's a choice to be made on where and how to do it, I never got to do it. I do have some abandoned blogs that I tried and haven't kept. I had one blog about 15 years ago where I wrote anonymously about local spam. After the spam clause in Israel's communication privacy law went into effect most of the local spam I was receiving disappeared within a couple of days, and since then I get very little spam, and I stopped writing about it (of course people are still complaining about all the spam they get, but since I use mostly disposable addresses for anything that is not work or family or close friends I know that almost all of this is actually the side effect of agreeing to addresses being shared with advertisers). So I lost interest with that one, and had almost nothing to add to it, and eventually the platform was closed and it's gone.
There's a good reason to have separate blogs when they are dedicated to particular topics or a particular audience.
If Fastmail had some built in blogging capability in the file storage that can be migrated to other platforms I would probably have used it, (and never migrate elsewhere).

I have a Wordpress account, mostly to interface with blogs I follow. I also have a Substack account, I just use that to follow interesting blogs or stacks as they are called. I really like Substack. If I ever decide to start, that is probably were I will start. The is a Linux forum I belong to that allows members to create blog post.

I have two websites of which one has a blog part, but I would say it's a site rather than a blog as the number of blog posts is very limited.

I also have a real blog which however needs an update very soon as the last post is from several years ago. I however still get a lot of visits.

Currently only 1, but I have maintained 2 or 3 at times. I blog semi-professionally on a topic I am expert on and I also write professionally in that space, but sadly many publications in the field no longer exist and others pay less than I got paid almost 40 years ago. It really isn't worth it to write for a living now unless you manage to do so for a very elite publication or website. I do it mainly because I enjoy writing and the topics I write on.

wow
this topic makes me look back to 20 years ago, when I was a young guy
I had Yahoo blog, and it was a sweet memory
now I have my own website Backlink service provider, but I can't forget the memories of my youngest years

I find blogs a lot more user-friendly (for a rookie like me) than a website. No programming skills or webbuilding skills needed when you use a platform like Wordpress.com or Blogspot.com. The downsides there is that you cannot make a download of your blog (you can with wordpress.com but you cannot install that backup anywhere, so should anything go wrong with your blog you are basically left with a quite useless backup only) and the limited storage space if you want a blog with many pictures. The downside of an own website is that it requires webbuilding skills, and I don't have many such skills. I'd opt for a blog probably if there were more storage space and useful backups.

Good, but not yet enough topics. Your blog could improve according to regularly added topics.

Does anyone know if Blogger/Blogspot allows to make back-ups of a blog hosted by them? And how many MB or GB you can upload in a Blogspot blog?
