Replying on Micro.blog is a bit like being able to comment on someone’s site from your RSS reader. It is nice to have so many ways & places to chat.
Comment directly.
Via micro.blog.
On own site via webmentions when you want to own your thought or add it to another bubble.

  1. @cn I am now thinking of this as a choice. Where do I want the conversations to take place and appear? That is not to say that I am sometimes surprised, but I think I am beginning to get a handle on things.

  2. @cn That is the choice?
    I might want to re to someone on their blog but not share in micro.blog.
    I might want to have a conversation in micro.blog but have it on my blog too (like this one),
    or I might want to re with a webmention to share wider or share my though.

  3. @cn yes, I’ve seen a fair amount of weirdness. For webmentions to work both ends need to do the right thing. I am certainly in the hands of developers. If stars align the result will be lovely. Micro.blog has made this interaction easy & posted all the comments to my blog.

  4. @johnjohnston implying WordPress receives them happily from Micro.blog; I’ll have to scour my database for evidence of mentions I have emails for… schema differences have impaired functionality before

  5. @cn I don’t really understand exactly how the comments come from microblog to my WordPress. They are not listed in the dashboard as webmentions but as comments. I do get webmentions from other blogs, but those can be strange.

  6. @cn @colinwalker some, even one of my own, went to spam. I pre approved webmentions, but as these are comments… I wonder if I Colin’s plugin will add webmentions before I pre approve webmentions, or I can pre approve comments from micro.blog.

    One of the things that I notice about Micro.Blogs in regards to your blog John
    is the amount of interaction that you seem to get. This post is a prime example.
    Some talk about the death of comments, but I feel that comments have changed and evolved. Now there are many things that ‘make a comment’ all tied together with webmentions.
    I do wonder though in regards to Micro.Blogs whether it is about the features and affordances of the platform or if it is the community that exists there? Or are they intertwined, somehow learning from each other?

    • Aaron,
      I think I benefited from being in micro.blog early. That seems to have boosted my comment count. There are not many, afaik, educators on micro.blog yet, mostly developer types. A lot of the chat goes over my head. It would be a great way to link up edubloggers if enough joined. It might be a bit early to encourage mass joining by teachers as the tech curve is quite steep and I don’t think all the pieces are there yet.For instance I’ve not sorted out webmentions in comments here, I’ll they a manual ping on your reply post and see what happens.
