Replied to a post on werd.io :

@werd.io well said. After finally deleting my Facebook account, I find myself syndicating less and less to Twitter as well, especially with Micro.blog available as another platform to discover and follow other indie bloggers.

 
 
 

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 👍🏻

 

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 😀

 

Yay, welcome @donmelton to Micro.blog!

 

Again, welcome to the joys of the IndieWeb. I, too, share your concerns about the long-term viability of community oriented projects like Known, Brid.gy, etc. I've recently heard it suggested that perhaps IndieWeb work should be managed under the umbrella of a foundation, which is supported by active community members and corporate sponsors.

The other encouraging note is that commercial endeavors are popping up that support IndieWeb specs and share similar philosophies. Notably, I like what I'm seeing from Micro.blog.

 
 

Micro Monday: Eddie Hinkle

1 min read

Its our first ever Micro Monday, people! Thanks to @manton and @macgenie for deciding to make this happen. I think its a great way to grow the community of Indie Bloggers and Micro.blog itself. My first recommendation for my followers is @eddiehinkle.

Eddie is a fellow IndieWeb developer that I've enjoyed getting to know over the past year or two. Eddie works on an iOS app called Indigenous:

Indigenous is an iOS app that is in development. It’s goal is to provide a native iOS interface to the indieweb movement.

Indigenous is open source, written in Apple's Swift programming language. If you're an IndieWeb-curious developer on Apple platforms, I'd encourage you to get involved with Eddie, and help him with Indigenous!

In addition to his work on the IndieWeb, I also appreciate following Eddie because he writes thoughtful posts about, you know, being a human. Its always refreshing to see someone share how their faith informs their life in an open and honest, accepting way.

Thanks for being awesome, Eddie!

 

Love to see all of the new activity on Micro.blog after the latest 💩☔️ over on Twitter. Welcome, everyone!
