Although I’ve already got a blog (you’re reading it!), I decided not to mirror my book reviews here. I post normal content so infrequently that anyone who wanted to read the blog but wasn’t interested in book reviews would be inundated with content they didn’t want. In the end, I spun up an additional WordPress instance on my web space (something that my host, Krystal Hosting, makes very easy to do) to keep the reviews completely isolated from everything else.
This seems to be a frequent excuse for people to spin up yet another website rather than attempting to tackle the UI subscription problem.
Social readers would be well advised to think about this problem so people could have a single website with multiple types/kinds of content.
Platforms should better delineate how to allow publishers and readers to more easily extract the posts that they're interested in following.
