Blew my chance at the Micro.blog 30-day pin by forgetting to post yesterday. No longer going to try. Posting to my blog needs to be natural.

@cdevroe Right on. I do like that these pins aren’t flashily displayed for others to see—they’re just for you, kinda like a high-five.

I personally don’t want to post something empty just for the sake of a check mark on a calendar, but I can see that being a thing for some.

@manton not publicizing the pins … good – to me they are a device that micro.blog can and should use in the future as new people come on board who may not be as fluent in blogging as some of the others who are here in the nascent days …. by using them I think of them as a gamification tool that as a new user gets them – brings them into the thinking and behaviour that micro.blog believes is good behavior and supportive of the overall good of the community … hand in hand with that should be an email onboarding process in that two free weeks intro … eg heh —- you posted three pictures over the past three days – one today and one tomorrow – gives you the ‘5 pin photo’ …. or whatever …. and so lying in there is that the 30 post pin is probably wrong …. for those that don’t care – it doesn’t matter … for those that do … it ‘incentivizes’ bad behavior … “i” have posted 25 days in a row … i HAVE to post today … missing a 5 post run – is easy to get to if you are so inclined .. 30 … not so much.
