I am not there yet but using micro.blog from my own site has been helpful for a few of reasons.
1. I’ve seen webmentions coming in from places other than Twitter.
2. I’ve been reading more via some of the other folk on micro.blog about how they are implementing Indieweb tech.
3. I’ve found conversations to reply to from my own blog that work.
4. Chris Aldrich’s posts and blog both spells out and exemplifies a huge range of Indieweb activities.

I think I am making slow progress and finding it fascinating.
I’ve still a long list of things I don’t grok yet. Both technical and ‘philosophical’.
