Why Does Max Town Look So Good

I've had some questions on why Max Town (and consequentially Max Space) is designed this way. I received several comments that it doesn't "look like a blog". 

Some friends told me to use Medium to write my blog. It doesn't have the capability to make posts like these so it would be a non-starter anyway.

Either way, lets suppose I only wanted to write long form blog posts, let's look at what a "blog post" looks like.

It is full of junk. You have to use the Safari Reader mode JUST TO SEE THE TITLE OF THE ARTICLE.

Cool, now that I've enabled reader mode I can actually read it.

You can think of Max Space as doing Reader Mode automatically for you.

Just like you would write an email.

Or a bank would inform you of some important information.

Or how you would send or print a PDF.

There is just no need to ruin your day by filling my web page stupid junk.

Which is why when you enable reader mode, all that happens is it applies your font and colour preferences.

Not to mention, my web pages load in under a second while Medium pages typically take 3 seconds or more in my testing.
