The benefits of publishing on IPFS are:
- Content is not censorable, as content is not hosted in a single place or by a company.
- Economical, as you don’t need to spend much money on hosting. You just need a small node to run IPFS on.
- Scalability, as your content is cached and distributed also by other IPFS users that read your content.
However, from a content creators perspective there are certain things that make publishing on IPFS rather difficult in comparison to regular blogging platforms:
- Your content is not addressed using handy domains, but through hashes that look like this:
- Every time you add or change content, you get a new or changed hash sigh
- If you want an immutable address for your blog for sharing you can have one, the IPNS hash of your node. However, that’s still a hash…
- Everytime your blog changes, your blog root will have a new hash that needs to be published to IPNS.
With LibreBlogging we try to come over these hassles and make it simple and easy to have a blog on IPFS while staying as decentralized as possible.
