Day 1 of IndieWeb Challenge https://indieweb.org/2019-12-indieweb-challenge.

Fixed all the feeds for my main blog website and checked their validity.

Good work so far. As you note, micro.blog already offers a lot of the IndieWeb building blocks. And it recently started to offer an option to register your own domain, addressing another of your points. It's a good option for people (who can afford it) to explore the possibilities, and the nice thing is you can always move your content somewhere else if you want to. That's another good reason not to rely on silos.

It worked! Well done. Are you also in the IndieWeb IRC/Slack?

Seems to me that your home page is great as a professional About page. Just add some markup like an h-card. You have a contact form, which is important, what more do you need?

An IndieWeb Book Club is a really interesting idea for people who like that sort of thing, but I am a bit Groucho Marx about clubs. I may get around to the book, or I may not, but right now I will watch from the sidelines.

Replied to a post on medium.com :

Very hard to believe that Tanner Campbell chose to put his very IndieWeb idea about podcasting on Medium rather than on his own domain. Of course, the idea will never work because the big players don't need it and the small ones won't hurt anyone by witholding their labour.

This news of a site for IndieWeb on Textpattern is very exciting. I used to use TXP back in the day for one of my sites, but moved it to WP. Maybe I'll move it back ...

Getting ready for two days of IndieWeb in beautiful Nürnberg.

Chris Aldrich's discussion of the rewarding discovery that a friend has read something that you are reading, before you see it in their feed, is spot on. It is fun. And it reminds me of two things. The most important is that I really need to get to grips with my tags, both in Zettelkasten and, perhaps even more importantly, in Pinboard.

The whole business of bookmarking, storing copies, highlighting and annotating remains a source of confusion for me. There are just too many moving parts. I quite like Chris' suggestion of making it a topic at a future IndieWeb Camp. I've got two projects on the go, either of which could be my thing in Nürnberg in a couple of weeks.
