Starting a New Blog
1st of January, 2018
A new blog post in a new blog!
I think it’s time to take matters into my own hands again and move away from the big brands pushing their ad-filled, engagement- and enragement-provoking content. I myself want to listen to and read more thoughts from my real-life friends, family, and acquaintances, and less from marketing divisions of multi-million or even billion dollar corporations.
Well, except for Apple, maybe 😄. But they’re rather quiet anyways.
So, this blog is my response. Like that saying “be the change you’d like to see in the world”, but a in a lot less dramatic and over-reacting way, hopefully. I hope that some of the people I like to listen to and get inspired by will also switch and publish their longer thoughts on personal blogs again.
Check out the advantages:
- You own your content!
- No ads, unless you choose to!
- No curated timelines!
- No idiots who aren’t blockable!
- No personal data leakage!
- Delete and edit as you decide!
- …need I say even more?
I case you don’t feel like visiting www.teesche.com every single day to check for new posts, but are still kind of interested what happens here, there’s another awesome feature that no huge company can control, because it’s decentralized like e-mail.
You can add this blog (by its URL) to a feed reader of your choice – I recommend feedly, but there are other great options like Feedbin. Additionally you can use nice apps like Reeder to view new posts. That way you control everything yourself, but without the stressful settings war that usually comes with self-controled software.
I’m excited and can’t wait to share more of the stories I tend to write which don’t fit into my marathon running blog. I’m usually rather into writing longform, but I’ll probably diverge from that soon. We’ll see what the future brings!
As a little sidenote, I had to artificially change the publication date of this post to the beginning of 2018, to make this the first post of the blog. Actually, I’m writing this in September of that year. I hope you don’t mind.
