Read Your Website Is Your Castle by Desmond RivetDesmond Rivet
In which I zoom in slightly on the #indieweb

Some nice quotes on what the IndieWeb is about, from Desmond’s article Your Website Is Your Castle.

In a nutshell:

At the heart of the IndieWeb is an attempt to unify the ideas behind personal websites, blogs and social networks, but in a manner consistent with how the world wide web operates.

Your website acts much like your wall on Facebook or your timeline on Twitter – it’s your personal soapbox, your castle on the web.

[…]one recreates, in a decentralized manner, the kinds of online interactions one has come to expect from private social networks.

Great writeup!

Separation of article concerns

Messaged you my friend code in the IndieWeb Slack!

… wishing I had a private posts story for my site right about now. 😅

Brilliant write up Neil, great stuff on getting it working! Nice to see that it was a case of connecting up various IndieWeb tools for a somewhat out-of-the-box feel

Indiewebifying events and RSVPs

Goes without saying that we won’t have an IndieWeb Meetup at Mozart’s this week. There are more online-only meetups popping up, though. Check out for upcoming events.

I’m doing alright most days; some increased anxiety and insomnia at times. How are you?

West coast organizers have been hosting indieweb meetups weekly now on Wednesdays. Drop in when you have a chance!

Hey Amit I meant to reach out - I think for this one I'll probably keep it as just for Nottingham, but I know the London event is open

@manton I actually moved off of Day One a few years ago and migrated all of the content to my site via micropub, with private entries. I now journal in Drafts, and publish to my site via micropub. I'd love to see a micropub client purpose built for journaling, or support added to Day One! Would be awesome if it were built on standards so I could use it for my journaling again :)

Reminder that it's #HomebrewWebsiteClub Nottingham tomorrow - we're online only on Zoom, and I'll share the link in the Tech Nottingham Slack for Nottingham folks

Fixed a couple of little bugs in #goldfrog - made it so that the webmention code doesn’t barf on servers with non-verifiable SSL certs, and updated the permashortid code so that Twitter doesn’t always link to the site for Notes
