Self-Hosted WordPress and GDPR compliance

So I started this blog after being a long time “Google+ only” publisher, and now GDPR is coming.

I have looked into making this wordpress instance GDPR compliance, but it’s no fun. The webfonts are easy, but “no more Youtube embeds without a consent orgy” is no fun, and losing the Google/Facebook/Twitter SSO integration will basically lose all mobile users (80% or so of all readers).

The easiest way to get GDPR compliance is to move back to Google+ only, or to move this blog to wordpress.com or to medium.com.

What migration target do you prefer (running a self-hosted instance is not an option for me after May, 25)?
