I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.

A drink for @vincent who is currently handling a lot of feedback for the new Micro.blog profile card. 🥃

I searched for “Stationery near me” on Apple Maps and one of the results was for a bookkeeper who happens to have the word “pen” in the name of their company.

There are times when it feels like you could fool Apple software with the trick, “Look! Over there!”

A new tab for Micro.blog profiles: Recommended

Posts from the timeline that you flag for sharing (via button alongside “Bookmark”, et al), which can then be seen from your profile.

Essentially an individual version of the Discover timeline.

Profile changelog:

  • added “Writer, coffee-drinker, and herder of small beasts.”

One of the fun things about working on 2.0 for TIL is finding website tech that might just work well with hosted blogs.

oh… tumblr does the gross account sign-up wall now as well? And look, an advert for… jobs at Automattic.

Ew.

We now live in “people leave the roof of their convertible down in a public car park” territory.

Honestly, I’m not sure I’ll ever be a city person again.

I miss @smokey a lot. With that in mind, I’m going to return to posting @monday recommendations and begin publishing another of his regular posts: “Unpublished Drafts”.

Unpaid, but productive.

Anna Havron, absolutely fucking nailing it.

For those people who are gainfully employed; remember the power you have, for which some of us can only wish.

One of my favourite parts of Micro.blog are the photos. Sunlit is on my home screen, alongside Glass and Flickr. I am also going to spend time setting up a feed reader for photos.

Next up: work on a blog post, or posts, to explain this and provide helpful links.

I love the choral moments from The Lord of the Rings soundtracks…

— Holly Honeychurch, Planets I on Bandcamp

Same. Those moments have been a welcome accompaniment along various paths, especially in my younger years.

When I find myself in better moments, rediscovering the good routines that not only make me happy but also make me better, I invariably find that I have nothing to say regarding subjects and issues about which I know very little; which is to say, most topics of conversation.
