Both Medium and Bucketbuff are blogging platforms and I see tough competition between them so this is an article to clear the dilemma.
Bucketbuff is a community of bloggers where what you write is totally own by you, you can delete it, revert it to draft, update it, do whatever you want it’s all yours. Bucketbuff offers readers the option to recommend a story
And if you are reading this article, you most probably know what is Medium but still,
Medium is a place to write. One discussion that comes up often about Medium is whether it strives to be a platform or a publisher, i.e. a place for others to share what they think (like Twitter) or a place for Medium to share what it thinks (like BuzzFeed).
Essential features of a blogging platform are
- Easy customization of design and layout (be it Theme based or HTML Editor based)
- Easy to integrate new features via plugin or something else.
- Easy social sharing options to let readers share the articles easily
- A good rich text editor (WYSIWYG based) to formulate and edit articles
- Easy to monetize. Standard size ad slots must be integrated within the platform.
- Seamless and stable hosting with minimal downtime.
- Able to handle surge traffic from Stumble Upon or Reddit.
Medium and Bucketbuff both are seriously amazing platforms to use and I seriously admit it.
I used both Medium and Bucketbuff for 2 weeks to review them.
The result was a bit confusing for me…
The reasons for each being best can be said by anyone but let me tell you the differences,
- You need to pay to read blogs on Medium and on Bucketbuff it is absolutely free
- You have a mobile app of Medium but Bucketbuff doesn’t have it.
- You have the statistics available on Medium but not on Bucketbuff
- More business opportunities on Medium but more connecting opportunities on Bucketbuff
- Verified users have brilliant features on Bucketbuff
Rest of the things are absolutely the same in both platforms
