I wrote a blog post a few days back about having an urge to leave WordPress. In the early days of my blogging (circa 2007), I used to jump blogging platforms frequently.
I was exploring platforms like write.as and blot.im to write in plain text and in markdown. This got exacerbated after reading Derek Sivers blog post on the advantages of writing in plain text. Reading his source code (Ctrl + U on many browsers) was also a joy.
It took reading a blog post by Mukunth to get my breathing back to normal. Every time I feel the urge to try out a new web platform, I must read this.

I can relate 100% to the pain of switching blogging platforms. There’s not a single one that makes writing and publishing pleasurable. Even the basic wordpress.com paid option is limiting, in that there’s little support for analytics (can’t use Google Analytics).
