I realized this morning that I have been on micro.blog for just over a year now. So, happy micro anniversary to me :) I continue to enjoy relationships here and the way m.b enables indieweb infrastructure is a great model. Cheers all, @manton and @macgenie!
Last time I went on vacation, I got all relaxed and thought, “sure, I can coach the soccer team.” This time I’m all relaxed and thinking, “maybe I’ll start up a tiny podcast here on my micro.blog.” 👀
Yeah, the barriers to entry are still too high for most, but this is certainly a good reason to host your own media. I can just log in to the server and run exiftool to verify that my images are all clean! It’s a nice level of confidence.
This note by @manton reminded me that I’ve been meaning to update my media endpoint to remove location data:
Micro.blog for iOS now strips the location and other metadata from photos before uploading too. It’s easy to overlook but really important.
Now, so does my micropub posting flow!
/now: Reading up on h-entry and workin' on my microformats.
Welcome to the micro.blog-indieweb rabbit hole!
Eli has micro.blog fever and the only treatment is more micro.blog! This is a great writeup and captures a lot of the enthusiasm shared around the m.b communities. 👏
