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.

Listened An Indieweb Podcast- Episode 2: IndieAuth by David ShanskeDavid Shanske from David Shanske
