"Use Ghost Bookmarker to easily add links and notes to a post, straight from your browser. Links are saved as a bookmark card (with an optional note) to a draft post called “Bookmarked links.” If this post doesn’t already exist, it’s created for you. Otherwise, bookmark cards are added to the existing content. If you publish the post or change the title, Ghost Bookmarker will create a new post with the “Bookmarked links” title. One way to use this is to save links during the week, publish your curated link list, and then repeat the process as needed.

@numericcitizen To be fair, the Ghost crew have basically nicked the best idea from the late, lamented Revue - but yes, it's great and I want it for micro.blog too.

@adders @numericcitizen I saw this update yesterday and thought the exact same. I’m happy for them to do that to be fair, I think they’re doing a really good job. I think I enjoy following and reading ghost writers the most. Maybe it’s a selection effect but the experience in the inbox (and on site) compared to a substack is far better IMO.

@ChrisJWilson As A long-term Ghost user and publisher (and Kickstarter backer, back in the day), you're not going to get any disagreement from me. :-)

@adders I backed the Kickstarter too. I always intended to try my year of pro but never got around to it. Ghost 1 felt a bit disappointing to me, but ghost 3 onwards has been really impressive. The CEO puts me off a bit though. I remember a couple of vindictive / chip on shoulder.

@ChrisJWilson Ah, I’ve always gotten on well with John. He has a limited tolerance for certain behaviours in a way that doesn’t always come across well. But I think he’s a decent person.

@adders @ChrisJWilson Yeah not for me. You might be thinking of this incident, Chris.

@SimonWoods @adders that was one. There’s also his Twitter aggression. I think he may be changing as I saw a thread recently where he called out substack for ripping off a ghost theme and using ghost APIs and it was very measured and opened to dialogue. It may have all been for appearances but that’s better than nothing!

@SimonWoods OK, I admit that I missed that completely.

Having read it, in a sense, I’m not surprised. He clearly has a low tolerance for certain types of complaint. But yes, that was a dick move.

My personal experience with Ghost support and John himself has been nothing but exemplary. It’s always tricky balancing personal experience with stories like these.

@numericcitizen @adders Definitely a great feature. As someone who wants to be a link-blogger but also don't want to inundate my followers' timelines, I refrain from posting links so currently all links go to bookmarks (Raindrop) only.

@pratik @adders I'll stay with Micro.blog with the monthly newsletter feature that is built using a specific category. I'm being super intentional when I decide to add a post with this category because I want the monthly result to be worthwhile in a way. Now, if only we could add "replies" to the newsletter too. @manton ?

@numericcitizen That's interesting… I don't see why replies couldn't selectively be included in the future. Right now there's no concept of replies being included in categories, though.
