Instagram is undoubtedly Facebook’s strongest shield against becoming the next Myspace.

Does anybody in the UK use a service for renting a PO box? The only option I’ve seen that looks trustworthy is the Royal Mail service.

For today’s Word That Will Always Look Incorrectly Spelled: relief.

One of my favourite things about Micro.blog is the spirit of maintaining a lightweight strucutre. Sure, there is power but it is paired with a continued effort to maintain the design for effortless microblogging.

The people who make silo social networks unironically use the word content.

We met an akita today. It’s the first time I’ve ever met one and she was big and strong and SO GOD DAMNED ADORABLE. 😍😍😍

Reminders for Microblogvember:

  • Just post once per day with the prompt word.
  • Hashtags are irrelevant.
  • Keywords are irrelevant.
  • Longer posts are OK.
  • There are a few spare days if you start late.

One of my current goals with regard to changing my consumption habits is to get back to reading.

Seriously, lots of reading, like I did years ago.

As such I’m going to post more about that, especially in the coming weeks.

It’s always gratifying to see creative work become the catalyst for more work. Determined to hit my mark with @til this week.

When in the middle of a significant yet lengthy piece of work it’s always important to remember that the key behaviour needed is singular focus. In that very moment that you are dedicated to completing the job, no other piece of work can matter.

I truly wish the IndieWeb movement was much less of a hobby for the few who can afford to indulge in it.

Lot of people out for Halloween in the city this evening. I always enjoy the costumes, the make-up… all of that creativity, especially in such a art/theatre heavy region, mixed with a dark and cold autumnal night can be magical.

When you break things up, you do this because you want to update things idenpenent of each other.
