@jasonmcfadden Microblogging is fantastic, and I've been a fan of it since I realized it's worth on Tumblr. I've tried, unsuccessfully, to merge the Micro and the Blogging for many years - because though I've used Tumblr for a decade or so, it's really not the platform I want to stay on.
I love the idea that Mb meshes both long for, short form and the Fediverse all together, as you said. There's a LOT of value in what Mb does, I'm just not sure how you and I can yell it from the Net rooftops enough for bloggers more set in the WordPress ways to take notice.
I've yet to write my post, but yours is great! Keep on blogging!
@Aywren Nice; Tumblr is one I've looked at more than once but never got into (interested to see how Automattic stewards it...). Yes, though I Tweeted before, I never really "got" microblogging; think I do now!
Maybe as M.b persists amidst tech disruptions or social media upheavals, more people will notice it, bringing organic growth -- the kind that's healthy and sustainable. Takes longer, but lasts longer. Cross-posting from M.b to more places could help...
Thanks for reading! And I look forward to your post. :)
@jasonmcfadden Micro.blog is such a hidden gem. It's nearly a perfect combination of a blogging platform, a social network without the usual sh*t, and a Mastodon-aware citizen, with powerful cross-posting capabilities.
@numericcitizen That's a good summary. I wonder how "hidden" it will remain, or how many more people will use it over time.
@jasonmcfadden If I ever do my YouTube video series about Micro.blog, It won't remain hidden for too long.
@jasonmcfadden This was a nice post. I’m glad you found a home at Micro.blog.
@moonmehta ☺️ Thank you. Glad to be here.
