Micro.blog is...
1. The fastest way to blog.
2. A safe community for microblogs.

Start a new blog or migrate an existing blog to Micro.blog with your own domain name. Micro.blog is the blog you will actually use.

  • Short microblog posts or full-length posts.
  • Markdown for styling.
  • Custom themes.
  • Categories, photos, podcasts, video, and more.

Post to your blog from the web or native apps. Micro.blog supports open IndieWeb standards so you can use many third-party apps.

Today's social networks are broken. Ads are everywhere. Hate and harassment are too common. Fake news spreads unchecked.

There's a better way: a network of independent microblogs. Short posts like tweets but on your own web site that you control.

Replies, conversations, and a timeline to follow friends.

After browsing this site over the last few days, and listening to several Micro Monday podcast episodes today, I’m eager to revive my long-dormant blogging…activity? career? hobby? (none of the above?)

Hello, Micro.blog community. What shall we talk about?

Back on Micro.blog after a long absense. I’ll start with a favorite photo.

If there’s anyone out there still following me for my blogging, I’m sorry posts have been few and far between for a while. It’s been a busy couple of months I’m afraid.

I’m hoping to get ’back on the wagon’ soon!

“Micro.blog is not an alternative silo: instead, it’s what you build when you believe that the web itself is the great social network.” — Brent Simmons

“Micro.blog is a small, friendly community and platform that understands the need for people to own their data but still freely express themselves on the web. A beacon of light in the darkness.” — Adam Procter
