Write your own ‘blog’/‘wiki’/‘hypertext’.
The most minimal and still very sweet way to participate in The Web. The child of watershed linksite Delicious, same conceit: post your bookmarks publicly, add a little note, a few tags. It’s like having your own href.cool! $11/year, but the real deal is $25/year and it’ll archive all the pages you link to.
The tilde.club was a 2014 resurgence of tilde-style user directories. You used to get these free at your university or with your home Internet connection in the '90s.
Create a single page with simple markdown. I prefer this one because I can come up with a memorable URL. Similar sites: telegra.ph, txt.fyi, rwtxt, typegram, verbatim.link, pastery.net, ix.io (a classic).
If you need to post something controversial or to subvert algorithms or bots for any reason, you can hide your text in these. (Hat tip, @foone.)
Dead simple free blogs. If you’re going to spend a little bit, consider micro.blog for its Indieweb support—which means people can comment from their own blogs.
No, let’s not forget the TiddlyWiki. This is a personal wiki that you can edit and save on your own computer. If you need to put your wiki online, you can use TiddlySpot. A more polished but less powerful service can be found in Notion or notepin.co.
