Review: An Honest Review Of The Blogging Platform Review 2019: For a simple personal blog, especially for those looking for a distraction-free blogging platform for writing, many recommend is a minimalist blogging platform that is integrated with Evernote. Basically, Evernote, the note-taking app, works as a Content Management System (CMS) for and you can publish your articles directly from there. In fact, needs you to use Evernote.

In this article, I will give a detailed review. Review 2019

Before choosing any blogging platform, especially when you are planning to invest in that platform, proper research of it is a must. You must be aware of the different features the platform offers, the plans and prices available, as well as other important information. It is only with this information can you come to the conclusion in terms of whether or not the blogging platform will serve your purpose.

So, the detailed blogging platform review – its features, advantages, and disadvantages are as under:

Evernote Integration

As I mentioned above, you cannot use without Evernote. It is through Evernote you have to create, manage and maintain your content on your 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 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, offers more option in terms of customizing the design of your blog. At present, 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 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


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.

Add-Ons 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, has more to offer in terms of add-ons. In fact, these add-ons should be there in other such minimalist platforms as well.

Custom Domain

Unlike Medium, supports custom domain. Of course, you have to purchase it from somewhere else and then link it to your blog. doesn’t offer any free (or even paid) custom domain even with their yearly paid plans.

Customer Support

They do have the feature to provide live chat support except that no one is live their most of the times. Drop a message and if you are lucky, you will probably get a response after a few days.


The paid plans start at $5 per month. This, I feel, is too much considering that there is no custom domain and no customer support. The use of Evernote is mandatory which needs one to purchase a paid plan if they want more than 60 MB upload every month.

Overall, I feel 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.
