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.

Wonderful NYT profile of MN restaurateurs Mateo Mackbee and Erin Lucas whose Model Citizen “popup” (glancingly mentioned) was one of my favorite restaurants after just one visit. New place added to my “must visit” list.

“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
