Micro.blog is now available to anyone. There’s a limit of 100 new sign-ups each day, so that we can better respond to feedback as the community grows.
I’ve been using Micro.blog on the web, Mac, and iOS for a few months and the community there has been great. In fact, the vast majority of my web site’s comments are webmentions sent from responses on Micro.blog.
Congratulations to Manton for reaching this milestone.
The last time I shared Micro.blog invite codes they went very quickly. Here are 5. First come, first served. mb-ed28cc, mb-d0f852, mb-dbb439, mb-9b86e4, mb-c0629e.
Lackawanna Lake – October 2017
Day 5 photo challenge entry.
Coffee bean counter, Duffy’s Coffee Company, Clark’s Summit, PA – November 2017
This being my day 4 photo challenge entry.
This was harder to create from a Live Photo than it should have. And I don’t like the result. But, such is life. Publish! This being my day 3 photo challenge entry.
I thought we could start on Saturday (Nov. 11) and go for seven days.
He has a theme for each of the 7 days. I’m in.
Mac users can use the native Micro.blog for Mac app. It’s a free download and supports most of the same features as the iOS version.
You can see a short video of it on Manton’s blog. You’ll even notice a rather handsome avatar make an appearance.
Unfortunately I cannot give this a spin yet since I haven’t upgraded my Mac to High Sierra. And it doesn’t appear I’ll be doing so for at least a month or two since I haven’t seen any updates from Apple on that front. High Sierra just seems far too unstable to switch to on my main work computer at the moment.
Colin Walker, though, seems to like this new app:
Manton has repeatedly said that this is just a version 1.0 app but, I have to say, it’s been rock solid. Browsing, replying and posting to the blog have all been a breeze and I’ve not had a single issue or error.
I was away for the weekend, so this is coming on Monday, sorry.
Colin Devroe suggested a #FollowFriday movement. I’ll start off with two bloggers I’m enjoying.
Thanks to Jimmy for including me!
Here are two others I suggest following:
- Manton Reece – Many discussions begin with Manton’s blog as he’s the tip of the spear in microblogging currently. He’s shouldering the responsibility well I think.
- Jeremy Keith – A veritable cornucopia of interesting links and behind-the-scenes looks at conferences around the world as well as thoughtful discussions that impact the open web. All in one place.
