Where to blog?

Through listening to Manton Reece and Daniel Jalkut on their Mac/Developer podcast Core Intuition ("A podcast about indie software development for the Mac, iOS and other Apple technologies"), I've been toying with the idea of posting to somewhere other than this site for the network effect, and exploring what other interesting folk are doing.

Manton's Micro.blog seems to have a lot going for it, despite being small, it's a network of interesting people and I've enjoyed browsing the discover timeline.

Our community is built on a network of independent microblogs, with replies, conversations, and a timeline to follow friends, backed by strong community guidelines that are enforced. You can interact with others while your content is on your own blog that you control.

I like the idea of a paid-for network that isn't rules by an algorithm, and somewhere that just shows what you post to the people who follow you.

Wondering how this can fit in with having your own site online, and where the boundaries are. I love writing here, but haven't found a place to upload occasional photos I like that isn't algorithm controlled, and Micro.blog might be it.
