Well, the alternative?
Having a OwnCloud server? Having an own server for the blogs probably with Wordpress and doing more updates than writing articles?
I don't know, that doesn't sound very appealing to me.
I'll guess all comes with a price though. If you bet all on one horse and ride it on your own, it's really bad if you get thrown off.
I can't complain so far. But seeing this makes you think what it means if it happens to you.
