I love blogs. Web pages updated with new notes, images, whatever. It's a simple idea.
But it's not simple in practice. Blogging platforms do too much (WordPress), hide content behind popups and paywalls (Medium), censor what you can post (Tumblr), and restrict how long your posts are (Twitter).
And these platforms want to trap you, only allowing you to follow and interact with blogs on their platform.
I created Tomo because it doesn't have to be that way. You can blog whatever you want. And you can follow any blog, wherever they are.
You see the latest posts from those you follow, not what an algorithm shows you. There are no ads, restrictions, or censorship.
You can @mention other blogs, even outside of Tomo (if they support Webmentions). Similarly, you can receive replies and webmentions from other blogs. You can repost things you find interesting, and bookmark posts for yourself.
There's more, but you'll have to see for yourself.
Tomo is $4/mo, and free to try. You're the customer, not advertisers.
