Manton Reece just released the JSON Feed WordPress plugin into the WordPress directory. Making it mad easy to install and support the new spec. WP Admin → Plugins → Add New, then search for “jsonfeed”. I’ve updated to this version in the directory so that all future updates come from there as well.

JSON Feed

Manton Reece and Brent Simmons have created a new specification for creating feeds using JSON. They write: We — Manton Reece and Brent Simmons — have noticed that JSON has become the developers’ choice for APIs, and that developers will often go out of their way to avoid XML. JSON is simpler to read and write, and […]

Twan van Elk, in response to my recent post: This week I am deactivating several social media accounts and focusing more on my blogging. He followed through too. I loved this bit after only a few days away from social media: That is also something that has changed: I now write for me. Sorry people, […]

Supporting WebMentions

Jeremy Cherfas, in response to a recent post of mine: Not exactly sure what Colin Devroe means when he says he’s “just going to publish her on my blog”. I guess that means he’s not interested in people, like me, publishing our comments on our blogs. Of course there’s no compulsion to POSSE to be […]

Tim Bray: On a blog, I can write about blog­ging and whim­si­cal­ly toss in self-indulgent pic­tures of May’s bud­ding aza­leas. OK, Tim. I see your azaleas and raise you these springtails. Tim’s post via Jason Kottke and Jeremy Keith. See also.

My old blog is back

You may have noticed a slight uptick in my publishing. That’s because I am, once again, coming back to my blog as the central place that I publish. Except this time I care far less about any of the content getting to any social networks. It is simply too exhausting to get working correctly. And […]

No-pressure blogging

Manton Reece: I love that blogs can scale from the trivial to the important. The microblog post about what you had for breakfast. The half-baked rant about something you’re passionate about. And sometimes, the rare essay that really hits the mark and makes people think. Publishing most of my “tweets” here first has led to […]

With my What I saw this week series of posts hitting #29 this week I thought I’d take a second to share how these posts do on my site, how I create them, how I choose what I will link to outside of these posts. These posts are some of my most popular week-to-week. My […]

App.net shutting down

Dalton Caldwell: We envisioned a pool of differentiated, fast-growing third-party applications would sustain the numbers needed to make the business work. Our initial developer adoption exceeded expectations, but that initial excitement didn’t ultimately translate into a big enough pool of customers for those developers. I’ve been a paying subscriber to App.net for the entire life of the platform (that is, until […]

Fix the internet

Vicky Boykis: We are a LONG, long ways away from the destruction of the internet as a giant billboard. It takes time to turn a huge skyscraper into an gutted shell of a building, and it will take just as much time to turn our current internet from a loud, obnoxious, toxic mall, back into […]

Stop worrying, hit publish

Jen Simmons, on her blog: So I have nothing much to say in this post. Or more honestly, I have so freaking much to say, I don’t know where to start. So I’m going to start here. I just need to break the silence. And get into a habit of posting. So I’m posting this. […]

NEPA BlogCon 2016

I often wonder what it would be like to be a first-time attendee at a conference like NEPA BlogCon. Even with the speakers attempting to keep things easy-to-understand I’m sure the flood of information can be overwhelming. I think that is why the mix of presentations at these sorts of events is so important. It […]

Eleven and six and twenty

Thanks to Jeremy for remarking how he forgot his blog’s 15th anniversary (congrats Jeremy!) it reminded me to check and, well, I missed my blog’s anniversary by nearly the same number of days as he did. On Saturday October 1 this blog, my personal blog on my own domain name but not my first ever personal blog, […]

A few updates to my site

Late last week and over the weekend I’ve made a few subtle updates to my site. I saw that this weekend was Indie Web Camp in Brighton and while I can’t travel a few thousand miles to hack on my blog I can sit at my desk and do a bit of hacking. The main things […]

Remy’s decade of blogging

Remy Sharp recently celebrated 10 years of blogging. What is he most happy with? More importantly, every single URL on my blog that’s ever been published still works, and even better than that (for me) is my archive showing off the decade of writing I’ve been producing over all this time. My blog archive is […]
