I'm starting a "blog" using ZAP.
I have tried many things, but nothing felt really good.
Then it occurred to me that I could use ZAP for this, I use it daily anyway and I'm quite comfortable with it.
So my blog will be natively in ZOT -network, but I have enabled AP also.
ZOT gives possibility to clone the accounts, so I have 2 other "copies" of the blog, and ZOT users follow automatically all 3. I can post my writings in any of these and they are are replicated in the background.
ZAP has also decent editing possibilities, posting scheduling/expiring and also possibility to disable comments.
About commenting, my default policy is to only approved followers can comment.
Blogs main address is https://raitisoja.com/@blog
and direct follow address is email@example.com
clones are in these addresses:
RSS feed for the posts is https://raitisoja.com/feed/blog&top=1
If you follow the blog from AP, you will also get friend request from the clones.
