Nope, not at all. Don’t even have a Twitter account.

This has probably been done a million times (and done better), but I quickly threw together a (for now) basic Webmention endpoint. github.com/janboddez/iw-utils

I’ve previously complained about not being able to easily add a `class` to inline links in Gutenberg. This here code takes a bit of a different approach, and uses `span` and `data` elements instead. (Still, I’d love to be able to just use `a` elements, _in a robust manner_.)

So, after you’ve carefully thought about the different feeds and feed formats you’re going to offer potential subscribers, please help aggregators find them by adding a `link rel=alternate` tag to your site’s `head`.

Updated my “‘IndieWeb’ Custom Post Types” plugin a bit. Integrated a couple things I’d implemented as several must-use plugins at first; it all became a bit much. (Good thing nobody else actually uses it; their feeds would break.)

Also, if you’re a developer who spends a lot of time curating their carefully crafted personal site, please, please advertise your feed by having, e.g., a `link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml"` tag in your `head`.

Want to create a modern, block-based, -compatible site. (Thing is, a lot of “IndieWeb” posts are created _outside_ of its [block] editor, i.e., through Micropub. [That’s not to say carefully crafted long-form posts can’t be, e.g., “replies.” They can.] The other thing is I don’t really like WordPress’s autogenerated markup/classes, etc. Athough there’s definitely things that can be done about that, too.)

Spent an hour or two writing a (basic) WordPress plugin that consumes “audio scrobbles,” like those sent to Last.fm. So rather than (share my data with a third-party service and then) use their API to display a widget or whatever on my blog, my CMS _itself_ is now the “audio scrobbling” endpoint.

(jan.boddez.net/notes/2a4054932)

I’ve long deleted my Last.fm profile (as well as my LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram, and various other accounts). Now looking into scrobbling directly _to my own site_. (I know mpdscribble let’s you set a target URL, and that scrobbles are essentially HTTP POST requests with an XML body, so it shouldn’t be too hard to parse these.)

Bookmarked indieweb.org/make_what_you_nee.

If you’ve wondered about an “IndieWeb” site but don’t know where to start: _Make what you need._

TIL that Yoast overrides core ’s inline link popover in order to add `nofollow`/`sponsored` toggles. All us folk now need is for someone to do the exact same but add a `class` input field, so we can add `u-*` classes without having to constantly fight the block editor.

Not-so-pro tip: in your RSS feeds, do not name titleless notes “No Title,” but leave out the `title` tag altogether.

It’s my still limited understanding of all things , undoubtedly, but all of this _feels like_ it’d be easier if we stopped trying to mimic Facebook products and just accept semantic HTML and be done with it.

I don't "book blog," but I do tend to forget which graphic novels—like, what edition and such—I actually own, even if there's only 25 of them at most. (I mostly get whatever few books I read from the local public library.) I mean, I'm going to have to do a (smallish) "books" section now.
