I am looking for a fediverse solution for a blog and I tried it with writefreely, but it has some disadvantages I can’t live with.
The most important one is, that it should be possible to communicate with people within the fediverse. People should be able to comment on every article with a fediverse account, like it is already possible between Mastodon, Pleroma, PeerTube and others. But comments aren’t a thing with writefreely and this is sad.
After using Lemmy for a few days I just thought if it is possible to use it as a blog and ask on lemmys github if it is possible to restrict a group so only one person could post new articles, but all others can comment. And the answer is yes!
But would it be possible to use it as a blog?
Imagine I would have a group called “utopify.org - Research & Development” and would post current progress about a blog series and you can only comment on it. Would it be possible and would it be something you want to see on Lemmy or would this just be an abuse of the software.
If all of this is just a no-go, are there other ways in the fediverse to have a blog article, which can be shared on the fediverse and be commented on?

I really dont know much about it, but I use it for a wiki. Hubzilla seems a powerful machine, but apparentlycan be complex and cumbersome?. For me it was really easy to install through softaculous in my shared hosting. It has some neat concepts and architecture though
I am really annoyed that it isn’t user friendly at all and I would say that’s why not many people would like to use it to read blog articles. It’s just too cumbersome.
Could be. I dont know. For me this far its been easy but havent used it much.
