Testing to make sure I’ll be able to use the micro.blog tools when they start supporting posting to blogs. I can post here using Quill, so micropub is working, but running the test suit at micropub.rocks produces only failures.
Here’s a great summary of all the things I never quit using: a personal website, #RSS, blogroll, etc. Now augmented with indieweb stuff like webmention, micro.blog, etc.
I’ve been an avid reader since I was a little kid, but very much not a tracker of things I read. In 6th grade I could have gotten some little prizes for reading a lot, if I’d been willing to go to the trouble of documenting the things I read, but I seriously could not be bothered to do so.
Very occasionally though, I miss having a record of things I’ve read, such as when somebody asks me, “Read any good books lately?”
I never signed up for Goodreads, and was glad I had not when they got bought. (Letting large corporations use my data to improve their bottom line bugs me on principle.) But just now I learned about IndieBookClub, which (like micro.blog) provides an interface for posting—in this case your reading activity—to your own website.
As a non-tracker from way back, I’m probably not likely to become a tracker just because there’s a new cool tool for tracking, but you never know.
Edited to add: I have posted my first book.
I installed a plugin to support Micropub, and am trying out OwnYourGram, a tool that pushes your Instagram photos to your own site. This is how/why images are showing up retroactive to the date they were taken.
