Self-hosting my blog and the related services not only gives me the independence from third-party-services, it also gives me the option to customize things to my liking. In my opinion, this is even more important.

I moved domains several times, merged blogs etc. and to keep links working there are a lot of redirects in place. That wouldn’t be possible with a service like micro.blog or at least not with its current features.

Additionally I can easily add new features. Just now I have implemented the option to receive notifications for new webmentions directly via Telegram.

Btw: Nice domain silo.rip! 😂
