This is a great idea but, as with apps like Quill and Micropublish, it’s sending notes to this site as a WordPress "Aside". I’ve tried to get rid of that post-format but it keeps coming back. It must be a theme quirk but it will need someone with better knowledge to fix it for me.

Replied to Post Kinds Plugin for WordPress by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
A WordPress plugin that allows you to easily create a huge variety of social media post types to own your social media life online.

I like what this plugin does but if you turn it off the major part of your post content disappears. I’m a bit worried about what would happen if Post Kinds were to stop working at some point in the future.

Read I believe in the IndieWeb. It needs to believe in itself. by Jason McIntosh (Fogknife) IndieWeb has forged keys to a better, more democratic web for everyone. They need to get organized before they can start really effecting change. I love the enthusiasm and excitement here and still share it t...

A hosting company that provides WordPress (and other blogging systems) with tested IndieWeb technologies out of the box is a good idea. I imagine it would take a lot of support but it should be do-able.

Replied to Trying and Failing to Setup Webmentions by Serena Ho (Serena Who?)
I’ve installed all the plugins, all the settings seem to be the same as my Trigger Point but I can’t seem to get replies from micro.blog to show up (I’m not even sure whether webmentions work). Can someone see from the screenshot whether I have some plugin combination that’s doing something ...

I don’t think you need the microformats 2 plugin with this theme. I don’t use it. Try turning that off and see if this mention goes through.

I’m always looking for fun and better ways to publish content to my website. There are several nice writing apps now, such as Byword for MacOS, which lets you write in Markdown and then converts it into HTML. Many of these kinds of apps have an option to publish to a Wordpress site, using Wordpres...

I would love to see Ulysses connected with this.

I’m very happy with paired Sonos Play:1 speakers for my streaming needs. The Play:1’s really shine when paired. Amazon Echo integration could be better but it’s good enough. I look forward to some balanced Apple HomePod reviews but I’m pretty sure I won’t be buying one.

I’m testing webmention replies on my own post because they don’t seem to be appearing elsewhere.

Replied to What's the problem? (Jeremy Cherfas)
Over at Scripting News, Dave Winer says: Every blog should have a Subscribe button. In an open ecosystem this is a problem, a problem that silos don't have. Which is the advantage Twitter (a silo) has over the open web. I guess I'm not smart enough to see what that problem might be.

I see what you mean.The wording is confusing. Could he mean that blogs should have a Subscribe button but in an open ecosystem many don’t and so readers pass them over for Twitter?

I think this might be the first time I've ever achieved this. Okay, so my move goal is artificially low because I'm still off work, but it still feels good!

I’ve achieved the perfect Move week a few times but, admittedly, my daily goal is also set quite low. If I haven’t reached the target at the end of the day I put on some favourite music and wave my arms around like a loon. That completes the circle pretty quickly.
