Moving to medium(?)

I was thinking of switching my blog entirely to medium, but I think I might stick with WordPress but add a new blog section that makes use of medium. WordPress is supposed to be the most popular blogging software, but I’m not getting much benefit from that. So I thought I could use medium to try and increase the readership a bit.

Medium already has a big audience that I want to tap into, and one other big advantage is that I won’t have to edit photos like on WordPress so that they aren’t giant and slow down the site. I can just post from my phone.

My idea is to add a new blog section at blog.timbunting.com that is based on medium. This only costs the domain fee and a yearly $50 which also includes access to medium’s paid content. My original idea was to just use medium, and I may do that in the future, but I have a whole lot of stuff I would have to switch over which will definitely take some time (if you read yesterday’s post, you’d know I’ve nearly written 1,000 blog posts).

I’ve also been considering changing my email address to look more official on the timbunting.com domain.

Thanks for hearing me out. Any opinions are appreciated.

Tim Bunting Kiwi Yamabushi


Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.

I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.

On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
