I recently started a blog on Wordpress and ran into a lot of problems. These include
- Wordpress.com doesn't allow installing new plugins, so the user must pay a monthly fee to host the blog on Wordpress.org.
- $\LaTeX$ support on Wordpress doesn't support equation alignment. Writing multi line equations is a mess.
- Writing math on a blog appears to be much more difficult than writing math in $\LaTeX$ .
- The blog writer has to adjust the font size of every line written in $\LaTeX$ . The default font size is extremely small.
Are these valid concerns about creating a math blog? Do all users who create a math blog run into the same problems?
It looks like I need to start self-hosting my blog per these recommendations and download the WP to $\LaTeX$ plugins to work around these frustrations?
The blog I wrote is at https://axion004.wordpress.com/. I'm writing the blog for fun and would like to write more.
A similar question was posted previously, How to start a math blog?. I made a new question since I am looking for a slightly different answer.
