2019-02-06 Blogging on Campaign Wiki

I’m a bit worried that 67% of all the blogs on the OSR RPG Planet depend on Google via Blogspot. I mean, it enabled blogging for a whole generation, I think. But notice how I’m blogging on a wiki... And I’m hosting CampaignWiki.

So… Can we blog, there? I think we can.

Visit the homepage and use a simple name for your blog:

You are now in “your” wiki. It’s empty. Notice the simple “New” link up there!

It helpfully suggests simply using today’s date as the page name. But feel free to add some more text.

You are now editing the page with that name! Write some stuff.

And when you save: there you go!

If you get to this stage and want to keep going, I can help.

There’s also a simple help page, and an advanced help page.

I’d suggest to start simple. 😊

I definitely want to emphasize the simplicity of it all. It’s not a great platform. Image hosting is limited. Markup is weird but you can switch to a non-standard Markdown variant. There’s RSS feeds and comments. There’s a way to get all your pages as HTML or plain text for backup. There’s a way to change the look and feel via CSS.
