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.

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.)


> Heureusement, les formats sont très simples à mettre en place : seulement quelques attributs class à ajouter par-ci par-là.


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 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.


I’ve long deleted my 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.)


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.

TIL it’s super easy to modify Press This’s default content, without having to know a ton of JavaScript.

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.
