Nixes Free Plan


posted March 6, 2015

Evernote blogging platform just announced that they will no longer have a free tier, and that anyone who doesn’t upgrade by March 17 will have their blog archived.

Although I can respect their decision to change their business model, my decision to move on has only been re-affirmed. $9 per month seems like a lot for this service. Although I have never tried Squarespace, they seem to have a much more powerful CMS for a smaller monthly fee.

The bummer is that I will have to recreate all my old blog posts at the same permalinks. Fortunately, I was using my own subdomain, so it’s possible … it’s just not convenient.

And I only have 11 days to do it.

I should note that I gladly pay for many web services (Fastmail, Pinboard, Evernote, Dropbox, and more) but never seemed to offer enough “wow” to make me want to give them money. And even 50% off for early adopters isn’t enticing enough an offer.
