Can’t stop thinking about the dynamic between podcasters who say they don’t trust Facebook with their data but then go ahead and advertise Squarespace who have the power to build people up via their websites and then just take it away at any time.
Phew! All caught up on my mentions and a chunk of my tl from today. Feels much more satisfying as compared to Twitter. ✨
I wonder if the juxtaposition of IndieWeb and Apple enthusiasts is as interesting as I think it is. I guess hardware and foundational software isn’t made to a decent and accessible standard by indie people? Probably not even possible at this point.
Obviously this is not the first time this issue has been written about, nor will it likely be the last but I enjoy the concise manner in which Shahid makes his points. It’s fair to say that the lack of real alternative options is hurting the Pro side of Apple’s computers right now.
I have the same anxiety about bridging my ownership to the rest of the world. For example, I’m already thinking about the people whose Twitter posts I enjoy that are not on Micro.blog; for now, c’est la vie but we’ll see how it goes.
Micro.blog; where stamps are more prevalent than algorithms.
Feeling overwhelmed and losing focus often go hand-in-hand for me. It’s so much easier to ignore the thing I’m anxious about when there are so many fun-but-meaningless things I could be doing. For example: “Ooh, look at the edits I can make to my site’s theme!”
Just finished reading the updated help page for Micro.blog, “Setting up Wordpress”. The page is both good and aligns with my current mode of finally getting my WP site up and running; I can’t wait to upgrade and get hold of the better Jetpack.
I see this a lot in my timeline. It makes me happy. :)
As @beckysays Micro.blog appears to be getting quite the New Years bounce. It’s especially encouraging to see so many people talking about the urge to write more, especially for fun.
