Is it possible to blog in the AI era?

I write short stories every now and then and I throw them online. I also have a tech blog, where I moan about the decisions software I use make and with my "infinite wisdom", I tell them what they should be doing instead.

I used to host both on Medium, but Medium got greedy. Then it was WordPress, but now even they're trying to be greedy bastards and use my shit for training AI.

Some would argue that WordPress paid hosting will exempt me from the AI training, but for less than 100 visitors a year, it's not really worth the expense.

So what is the solution? I ask the greater minds of this community for suggestions.

Maybe, very simple but I think enough for writing stories, it's free, OpenSource and private.

  • A privacy-first, no-nonsense, super-fast blogging platform
  • No trackers, no javascript, no stylesheets. Just your words.
  • This is a blogging platform where words matter most.
  • Shun the bloat of the current web, embrace the bear necessities.
  • Looks great on any device
  • Tiny (~2.7kb), optimized, and awesome pages
  • No trackers, ads, or scripts
  • Seconds to sign up
  • Connect your custom domain
  • Free themes
  • RSS & Atom feeds
  • Built to last forever

So I've been looking at this and my only issues are that it's not connected to the Fediverse and that it feels too sparse. I would like embedded image support. But thank you for the suggestion.

You can embed images, using Markdown ![](image URL), same as here in Lemmy, also several themes. But yes, it isn't part of the fediverse.

Another possibility, if you have an own host, is using the Blue Velvet Editor, its a complete wordprozessor which works right in your browser (PC and Mobile), it saves the documents locally in Html format by default. So you can upload it as is to an host, as webpage. Free, private, no account and blazing fast.
