One Year Since The #IndieWeb Homebrew Website Club Met In Person And Other Last Times - Tantek

Expect more poignant one-year anniversary memories this March.

We reached our disembarkation stop and stepped off. I put my mask away. We hugged and said our goodbyes. Didn’t think it would be the last time I’d ride MUNI light rail. Or hug a friend without a second thought.

Why I Still Use RSS | atthislink

Having only the content I want to see only be shown when I want to see it with the freedom to jump between readers as I please, all with no ads? For me, no other service comes close to the flexibility, robustness, and overall ease-of-use that RSS offers.

There’s a voice inside your head that prevents you from sharing ideas—punch it in the face. - Airbag Industries

Violence is never the answer, unless you’re dealing with nazis or your inner critic.

The excuses—or, I’m sorry, reasons—I hear folks say they can’t write include: I’m not very good at writing (you can’t improve if you don’t write often), my website isn’t finished (classic, and also guilty so shut up), and I don’t know what to write about, there’s nothing new for me to add (oh boy).

Welp, backlog of webmentions from means you may see some poorly timed interactions from me - sorry 🙃

@Cambridgeport90 I don't worry about them stepping on each other, I simply make sure they're cross-linked so that if I go looking for something, I'll be able to find it. Webmention definitely helps in this respect.

As an example you'll notice that my earlier response ( links to part of the related commentary on my main site, so there will be a webmention in the comments there that ties it all together.

fluffy rambles: Where I'm at right now

Agh, I need a way to retag some posts that have a particular post. Now I really wish someone built a CMS UI that worked against Micropub.

Once again, need to fix the rendering of my Webmention feed on my site. It’s doing it manually right now until I have Lwa acting as a Webmention service.

I really like the Life Happens page in the IndieWeb wiki that Ana highlights. Such a great message to acknowledge that other things happen in people’s lives that can prevent them participating in a community.

Great post! I wrote about a related topic back in 2017. It’s time for a browser to become the lynchpin in the future of the social web.
