Hello everyone, I've been recently weighing my options on where to host a web serial; at least in terms of blogging platforms rather than anything especially tailored for it like RoyalRoadL. WordPress seems to be the default recommendation, but I was disappointed in its format and lack of customisation options on free plans. I've looked at Blogger a little, but it seems rather clunky at a first glance. Unlike WordPress, though, I get access to the HTML/CSS, so it might be an option to look into further.
I haven't heard of anyone using Tumblr for a web serial. I've been told it isn't easy to set up navigation, but I'm a web developer so I had no problems whipping up this prototype a year ago: http://stupidtestthing.tumblr.com/ As far as I know you can set up Google Analytics and Disqus comments, but I'm not sure about things on the community end vs the WordPress or Blogger web fiction communities. Anyone have any thoughts?
