What is the best fediverse-compatible service to run a blog (not microblog) on? I see a lot of #writefreely instances, but it doesn’t seem too well-integrated. E.g. it seems to be impossible receive comments from #mastodon users. Then there is #plume, but it’s harder to find instances and there is information about the software being less well maintained. So, what would be good options? I’d prefer not having to self-host.

Give Hubzilla a try. Make sure to activate the PubCrawl addon for ActivityPub support. https://hubzilla.org/page/hubzilla/discover

@dreiwert Your account? You are in Lemmy right? In Lemmy, create a community, make yourself as a moderator, lock that community to moderator only post, and that’s it, you’ve got yourself a blog.

Tell everyone to follow your community (or your account if your account is dedicated to blog only).

The layout is only matter to someone who visited your community, to everyone else who following you, they will see a regular post in their frontend (like RSS, the layout is matter to the one who visited your site, the one who uses the RSS will see a regular RSS feed in their RSS reader). So, it didn’t matter if you use a dedicated blog or just a regular microblog, your post will be parsed as a regular post in other server (if that someone is using a microblog, it will be parsed as a microblog post, like your Lemmy post is just a regular Pleroma post in my server).

Of course ask your admin first about this.

If you have enough time on your hands you could create a blog theme for Lemmy. I believe all the necessary functionality is there, it only needs to be rendered differently.

Maybe drupal or WordPress with an ActivityPub plugin ?

paper.wf is an open WriteFreely instance that might help you if you just want to sign up to a service and start writing. Not sure who the owner of the domain is and how it is being funded though

A community dedicated to fediverse news and discussion.

Fediverse is a portmanteau of “federation” and “universe”. It is a common, informal name for a federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages.
