If you are looking for a new platform to self-publish on, have a look at http://www.dreamwidth.org - which has several interesting features. It is still young, and feels a bit raw - but I like the ideas which has gone into this.

I am trying it out at https://larsfosdal.dreamwidth.org

It has a decent list of "services", some which depend on the account type
https://www.dreamwidth.org/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=4

It has reasonable operating principles
https://www.dreamwidth.org/legal/principles

Pros:
- No ads
- Tags
- Circles
- Communities
- Your posts can be read without being logged in
- Your posts are crawled and can be found by search engines
- Incoming RSS feed aggregation, which again can be shared with others
- Your posts as RSS feeds
- A reading list, which consts of the feeds (persons, circles, communities, RSS feeds) that you subscribe to
- Basic account is free, paid accounts are reasonably priced
- It has an internal economy system that can be used to buy services, or be gifted to others for them to use

Cons:
- Page Styles are not very ... stylish - but can be amended
- No syntax highlighting (but is planned)
- Oldschool editors
- No markdown There is markdown support
- No sign in with Google/Twitter/etc
- No two-factor authentication
- Looks like crap on mobile
- Not yet widely used

Viable blogging platforms?
If you want to get away from Blogger, and don't consider self-hosted solutions or WordPress hosting, what are the alternatives out there?

Medium
Ghost
GoNevis

I kinda like GoNevis - and you can start out for free, but it is a tad limited in features, particularly for code highlighting.
