Micro.blog

Okay, so I set the Today page as the blog home page, just as a test to see how it goes. If there are no posts yet for that day it will tell you then list all the previous posts in the existing format.

I really like the idea of “Today”... colinwalker.blog

@colinwalker Same here. I haven't been motivated enough to try and make it happen though. Glad you are! May have to go back to using Winer's tools some day :)

@jack I'm not sure if it will work or if people will "get it" - how many people actually visit sites as a whole these days anyway? Still, it's a fun experiment 👍

@colinwalker Good point. I blog mostly for myself, and the more microblog-type stuff I integrate, the more I kind of just want to see today's "activity" in one spot/day. Interesting to think about.

@jack Same here, mostly for me but but blogs are part of the social web (especially the indieweb) so there's no point isolating any potential audience.

@colinwalker I like the today set up, what would be quite interesting is having the ability to jump to the same day in a previous year.

@matthew That was something I was looking at. There are various plugins that do this but might just write a custom query.
