What is the experience of blogging on the blockchain?

Believe you have visited my blog before, and you may have noticed that my data is gone again. This time it's not because the IDC ran away, they are fine. It's just that my QQ email no longer supports domain email. I didn't receive the renewal notice for the VPS, which resulted in the VPS data being cleared and unable to be recovered. After this incident, I decided not to use traditional IDC VPS anymore. The blog data is also not stored in SQL. Initially, I chose to use static blog systems like Hugo or Hexo, hosted by services like Vercel, and deployed for free on GitHub. No need to worry about server expiration or blog data loss, after all, the data is on GitHub. Recently, I discovered a product called xlog, which can synchronize data to the chain and permanently store one's own data through blockchain technology. This way, I no longer worry about data loss. So, these days I started migrating my blog to xlog. After a few days of experience, I feel that this product can meet my basic needs.

What is xlog?#

The first open-source on-chain blog platform. The blockchain stores all blog data, including website configuration, articles, followers, comments, likes, etc., which are signed and stored on the blockchain in the form of NFTs, and can only be controlled by you who hold the private key.

Features of xlog#

All data is synchronized to the chain, so there is no need to worry about data loss.

The wallet is your own management account, so you don't have to remember your backend password anymore. Sometimes if you forget, you have to go to the database or use specialized tools to retrieve it.

Data is stored in IPFS through the service of 4everland.
