Do You Just Want to Focus on Writing? Try Out Typed.com!

WordPress is the undisputed king of blogging platforms, with the latest version, WordPress 4.1 having been downloaded 23,195,115 times (and counting every second).

It’s thus understandable that bloggers, freelance writers, and journalists have been looking at a “post-WordPress world” where a blogging platform is just that: a venue to write without all the distractions and complications.
