Wordpress.com supports Markdown

wordpress.com/support/wordpress-ed...

When I search WordPress.com for Genealogy, there are many hits

wordpress.com/read/search?q=geneal...

Medium.com does not directly support Markdown, but there ae ways:

markdowntomedium.com/

I think in all of this it is important to remember that the content and the audience for the content is far more important than the tools used to create the content. So a good principle to follow is to find the audience and then tweak whatever the system is so that it works the way you want it to work.

In doing this you gain two skills. 1. Learning about the domain of knowledge you are involved with because you are surrounded by experts in the field. 2. learning how to tweak your tools to make the best of the situation you find yourself.

Thanks. markdowntomedium.com looks interesting, but it creates gists to embed code in medium. This is not what I'm looking for, as if like to write the entire content in markdown to avoid WYSIWYG interfaces altogether...
