Since my blog go updated and https is turned on I can expand my IndieWeb experiments a little.
The updates allow me to use my blog to sign on to other services. I am unsure of how this all work, but it akin to using facebook, twitter or google accounts to sign on to various services.
I’ve set up an account on aperture which is the first bit of a reader app, I then can use Microsub clients like Indigenous for iOS, Together and monocle to read and respond to these article, the responses will be posted through on my own blog.
For now I’ve only got a few sites flowing through aperture and I am unsure where this sits with my rss reading. I’ve made a few posts through the readers, with varying degrees of success. Certainly worth continuing with. Some of the services are in Beta mode, but because it all happens through my blog I will not lose any content that I create.
WordPress for presentations is a great idea. I couldn’t follow live so appreciate this more than a pp. WordPress can post replies to tweets too;-) #pressEDconf19 #IndieWeb
Jeffery Zeldman argues that in being unable to pay mortgage associated with the web, we have become indebted to the mob that is platform capitalism. This has led us into the money trap, which demands unrealistic rewards that care more about clicks than community. Zeldman’s suggestion on how to fix…
Aaron points to Nothing Fails Like Success (A List Apart).
Aaron links to several fellow travellers reactions that make great reading too.
Aaron’s own blogging has gone a long way along the IndieWeb path and is a excellent one to follow.
I love what you are doing with your Newsletter on several levels:
- A great set of personal and professional links gathered from an amazingly wide range.
- The way the links weave into your site.
This is interesting stuff, you had me at serendipitous😉
I think the IndieWeb is worth raving about, I’ve not really figured out all the technical details, I tend to install, see if it works and forget.
Even more exciting is with the IndieAuth plugin you can log in with your own blog as opposed to relying on twitter or github.
I love to chat about some ideas around aggregated courses and the IndieWeb that are floating around my head inspired by 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.
