I just read Rachel’s post on how valuable blogging experience is, and I’m considering starting doing so myself just like a lot of you guys in this forum! I’m really looking forward practicing my writing skills as I’m learning more and more about how important it is in this field.
I’m a full-time learner as I’m in a gap year before entering college, and these are the contents I’m thinking of posting as I start blogging:
- Monthly progress checkup on what I’ve studied/done, organize links for other posts I made that month, and give a short review on how the month went
- Why? I want to keep in track of what/how I study…so why not share with others?
- Showcasing my mini practice projects that will likely cover core concepts I want to explain in my own words.
- Paper Reviews (Multi Agent RL)
Now I’m a bit confused on which platform to use as I’m absolutely new to blogging stuff: fastpage or medium. So far I get the feeling that medium is easier to get more exposed to other readers and have more interaction, although I don’t think my journal-style monthly progress check would fit with the vibe.
On the other hand, fastpage seems like a natural way to integrate with my existing github.io page but I’m concerned how to interact with others. I don’t know if there’s features such as tracking views, comments, or follow/subscribing.
Considering the contents I’m thinking about posting, what do you guys think would fit better? medium, or fastpage?
Thank you so much!
