Postach.io Review 2019: For a simple personal blog, especially for those looking for a distraction-free blogging platform for writing, many recommend Postach.io. Postach.io is a minimalist blogging platform that is integrated with Evernote. Basically, Evernote, the note-taking app, works as a Content Management System (CMS) for Postach.io and you can publish your articles directly from there. In fact, Postach.io needs you to use Evernote.
In this article, I will give a detailed Postach.io review.
Postach.io Review 2019
So, the detailed Postach.io blogging platform review – its features, advantages, and disadvantages are as
As I mentioned above, you cannot use Postach.io without Evernote. It is through Evernote you have to create, manage and maintain your content on your Postach.io blog.
The website’s home page says “Turn an Evernote™ notebook into a beautiful blog or web site.” I don’t understand what’s the big deal here. Why complicate stuff by integrating Evernote in the process? We could have directly used the platform itself. If anything, Evernote integration, I feel, is a big disadvantage of Postach.io. Not only because it complicates the process of blogging but also because the free version of Evernote allows only 60 MB of upload every month. So, with the free plan, you cannot exceed that limit. And if you delete content from your Evernote notebook, it gets deleted from the blog as well.
Compared to other minimalist blogging platforms, like Medium and Svbtle, Postach.io offers more option in terms of customizing the design of your blog. At present, Postach.io comes with around 15 themes, including the premium ones, which are decent and available even with the free plan.
However, by the end of this month, as Alex from Postach.io said, the premium ones will be blocked for free users.
With paid plans, you can even customize the themes. This, I feel, is the best thing about Postach.io.
You can create posts using Markdown, which is easier than HTML. The syntax is easy to learn and there is less possibility of making mistakes.
Postach.io supports a very limited number of add-ons – only five – Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram integrations, Google Analytics, and Disqus comments.
Compared to other minimalist blogging platforms, Postach.io has more to offer in terms of add-ons. In fact, these add-ons should be there in other such minimalist platforms as well.
Unlike Medium, Postach.io supports custom domain. Of course, you have to purchase it from somewhere else and then link it to your Postach.io blog. Postach.io doesn’t offer any free (or even paid) custom domain even with their yearly paid plans.
The paid plans
Overall, I feel Postach.io is not worth it, especially because of the price. If you are happy with the free version, then it is OK. And if you are ready to pay $5 every month, I would suggest you go for other options.
