Where are folks planning to migrate their Google+ Collections?

I'm currently planning to self-host a blog, since Collections were mostly about social blogging on a topic. (some of my reasons are in my reshared post)
Well it's no secret that Google+ is shutting down, which means this Collection only has a few months of life left. :(

Because I had fun posting random moments of comic book history here, I've decided to use this sad opportunity to start something again, but with a few changes:

* I'd like to have more control over the delivery mechanism and the data
* I'd like to be more comprehensive (start at the beginning of comic books)
* I'd like to post more regularly

Feel free to check it out at https://codedread.com/comicbooks/ or add the feed to your local feed reader: https://www.codedread.com/comicbooks/feed/. I'm well into the thirties but naturally it will take awhile to get back to the Silver Age.

Obviously by using a self-hosted blog, it's going to require more effort to be social, but I couldn't think of an alternative that met all my requirements :-/. Perhaps if a decentralized social network becomes successful and has a feature like Google+ Collections one day I'll migrate the data there. And I'll continue to look into WordPress plugins. I'm open to ideas though!

We all have wings, but some of us don't know why

I haven't worked on G+ for awhile or had much to say on the platform, but I too am sad to see this happen...
"Sunsetting consumer Google+"

Seems only appropriate to share this on Google+. I haven't been especially active on Google+ myself as of late, but I wonder what I'm going to do with the thousands of posts (public and private) I've made over the years. Maybe I can migrate them easily to Blogger or something.

I have ten months to figure it out!

Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel hits the ground.

The Return of Alfred, the Butler (1966)

They killed off Alfred for a time, but of course this being comic books, they eventually brought him back. I guess it helped explain his presence in the TV show.
