"As WordPress continues its move toward becoming SquareSpace, Micro.blog just keeps becoming a better blogging platform." – Jack Baty on Micro.blog couldn't be more right! I'm increasingly recommending Micro.blog over WordPress for bloggers.

 

Thanks to @CultOfMac for their article on using Indiepaper with Micro.blog!

Helping my dad, @IntlBuzz, get set up with a Micro.blog account.

 

I have started to think of Micro.blog as a wonderful discovery and aggregation service for the IndieWeb. It fits neatly into my Microsub reader, enables me to find new people to follow and interact with, and integrates perfectly with my website through Webmentions. πŸ‘πŸ»

 

This is precisely why I prefer Micro.blog’s model. It’s decentralized for individual websites, but centralized from a network perspective, enabling strong community guidelines and enforcement.

That said, there has never been a better time to join the and Micro.blog has made it easier than ever before. I can’t recommend it enough.

 

If you're using my service to generate an "On This Day" page for your Micro.blog site, it's now an order of magnitude faster thanks to optimization. To see the benefits, you'll just need to have posted recently! - https://github.com/cleverdevil/micromemories

 

Hey, Micro.blog users! I built a way to add an "On This Day" feature to your website. I've put it on @cleverangel's site at http://cleverangel.org/on-this-day, but you can (in theory) use it too! Instructions here - https://github.com/cleverdevil/micromemories

 

My goal? Get people off of Facebook completely, and back onto the open web, where they're in control. I highly recommend Micro.blog as a great place to land! Using https://github.com/cleverdevil/ditchbook, you can even move your data πŸ˜€

 

Thrilled to see @manton added experimental support for Indiepaper in Micro.blog! Give it a try, folks, and let me know what you think.

 

I've started a short-form podcast (a "microcast") at http://cleverca.st. Its hosted on Micro.blog and I've really enjoyed working on it so far. I've already made improvements from episode 1 to 2, especially with sound quality. Check it out!

 

The writing has long been on the wall: Twitter is going to destroy its third-party ecosystem. Why? To focus on controlling the entire experience for their proprietary platform. If you haven’t considered the , now is the time. With services like Micro.blog available, it’s now easier than ever to participate in the open social web.

 

Everyone welcome my lovely wife @cleverangel to Micro.blog! She's hosted on Micro.blog at her domain http://cleverangel.org.

 

I've decided to stop syndicating certain types of content to Micro.blog, including Checkins, Replies, and Likes, in favor of keeping those exclusively on my website.

I think it'll make for a more pleasant experience for my followers πŸ‘πŸ»

 

On a related note, Micro.blog is already shaping up to be a lovely platform for sharing and viewing photos. In order. Without ads. Sunlit 2.0 should make it even better.

Now, I just need to make my CMS work better with both πŸ˜€

 

Yay, welcome @donmelton to Micro.blog!

 

Love to see all of the new activity on Micro.blog after the latest πŸ’©β˜”οΈ over on Twitter. Welcome, everyone!

I wonder if @manton knows the folks behind Twitterific, Tweetbot, et al? Would be amazing if he could convince them to support Micro.blog.

 

One thing I loved about the early days of Twitter was the UX innovation from third-party clients like Twitterific and Tweetie. I’d love to see that happen for Micro.blog, and RSS, JSON Feed, Micropub, Webmention, and other IndieWeb concepts make it entirely possible.
