@jamesvandyne Agree about the fantastic work that David, Matthias, etc. have put in on the WordPress plugins — it really reinvigorated my blogging. Also agree on being stuck within WordPress. I've been saying for years now that the indieweb is too complicated, the technologies are great but almost impossible to deploy for the average person beyond WordPress and even then awkward to get right. That's why I had to write some of my own to enhance what was there and add some quality of life touches. That's why I admire what @manton has done with micro.blog — it's the first step in bringing the indieweb to the masses but more needs to be done. My goal with my own blogging system was purely to get off of WordPress and have something tailored specifically to how I work. While it is possible to strip it back so that others could use it that was never really the intention. For you to be building a system that makes it easy and is designed for others to use is highly commendable and I applaud you for it. 👏

@colinwalker Thank you - it's still a ways away from others being able to use it without me doing the install but it'll get there some day. I agree, @manton's work with micro.blog is a huge inspiration.

@jamesvandyne @colinwalker I agree with Colin; it's always great to see more people working on the problem of making the independent web much more accessible to the average person.

I look forward to further reading about your work, James. Good luck!
