Replied to More thoughts about Micro.blog as an indie social network by Paul Jacobson (Paul Jacobson) Brad Enslen is doing some great work over at Micro.blog, spreading the word about this innovative service. He published a post titled “The Case for Moving Your Social Network to Micro.blog"
I’ve been enjoying Duke’s life by proxy on instagram. It is the sort of thing that keeps me there despite the algorithmic post order, many adverts and lack of friendly API. (The best thing about flickr imo is that it has an API that can be used by mortals).
Have you seen:
Which pulls your instagram into your own blog, indieweb PESOS style.
Personally I just post photos to my blog first, often via micro.blog, and then manually post them to instagram. I use the tag #manualposse if I remember.
I am not sure I really grok this, but it sounds like a great idea.
If you missed it, here are slides with links and resources for my IndieWeb and WordPress presentation at WordCamp Riverside 2018. Video coming soon. Thanks to everyone who came and participated. I’m happy to answer any additional questions.
Slides Are a great overview of IndieWeb for WordPress. Looking forward to catching the video.
I wonder if the problem is part of the solution? As I slowly explore the IndieWeb ideas and tools I find that quite a few don’t do exactly what I want. So I slow down. Think. Tweak. Often delete a draft.
For example, I am starting to understand Indigenous, I’ve Micropub posts set to be drafts. I don’t like the way my theme presents these posts. I remove the auto generated excerpt, tweak the title and perhaps the quote. This helps me think the post through. It becomes a little less knee-jerk.
I’ve a long way to go. I get distracted, meander, I click and like, but I think the IndieWeb is making me a happier blogger.
Glad to see this. There has a been consistent drift to twitter & other social for comments. I think this is a pity for several reasons.
I am responding to this with a webmention, which it looks like you have adopted. I’d hope that the quality of comments received via webmention might be better given that the comments will be published on the commenter’s own site. These might be less knee-jerk or throwaway than a tweet or toot?
There are still a few wrinkles to be ironed out of webmentions but I have high hopes that they will be more widly adopted and be a good thing.
I’ve had my own struggles with getting IndieWeb working here too. I’ve a fair bit I still need to sort out.
I wish I had a bit more time to play/work with this stuff, I don’t think I’d fix any problems but I might get things here working more to my liking.
I do think that WordPress is the best chance of getting the IndieWeb working for the rest of us. The other approaches seem to technically daunting for me.
On getting webmentions to work I found the WP Crontrol plugin useful. It lets you see the webmentions queueing up and you can run them manually. That might be worth a punt.
Anyway, good luck and I’ll be very interested to see what you come up with.
I’d like to try. Are there details about remote participation?
I have been tweaking my website a lot this week and wanted to write a few notes about my IndieWeb progress. In my early days, I tried to just implement a ton of stuff. Then I had to tweak a bunch of things to get what I wanted. I can be too rigid sometimes, and I think some of m...
I’ve been meaning to try something like this.
My bookmark feeds don’t have the titles of the bookmarks. Nor link to them. Ones < 280 chars don’t have titles.
The RSS templates are not in my theme but in WordPress in wp-includes. I added only one of my own for microcasts and it goes in my theme folder. It is added as a custom feed.
I don’t think that the indieweb themes do anything with the RSS. It sounds like you are looking for daring fireball type titles/links? I think there was a plugin for that.
BTW I didn’t, yet, get a mention from your post?
