@activatelearn Hi Helen, from Twitter et al, to here? Do you post from your blog here (through RSS), or directly?

@jean thank you Jean. This is all new for me! I’m slowly getting into this after having seen this site mentioned. I’ve recently got off social media and looking for ways to communicate to others without having those conversations on the big platforms.

@ton Hello Ton! I think it was one of your posts (or Stephen Downes 🤔) - nevertheless I was reading about the Indieweb - that got me down a rabbit warren and found this site. I need to explore and research more.

@ton I wasn’t aware I could link my blog to this site…. Need to research this more. 🤣

@activatelearn Yes, it can be a bit overwhelming at first. One place to start following people is the Discover-tab, and then following who they follow or are conversing with. The technical bits can mostly be figured out on the Help pages, or by asking @help for help.

@odd thank you I’ll do this. I can’t figure out how to change my profile page as not allowing me too. I assume it’s because it’s a free account and a trial period. Oh well, I’ll investigate further. Thank you for the tips, I’ll check them out.

@jean hello Jean. I can’t seem to get into the desktop version of Micro blog as it’s unable to find my email. It’s not recognising anything which is I assume reason why I can’t upload a photo or change anything in my settings to update a profile. Is it bc it’s a trial account?

@activatelearn Hi Helen, it looks like you signed up using Sign In with Apple. I'm not sure how that works with signing in again. I'm tagging @manton, who can answer this. It's not because you are on a trial account. But I've extended your trial for another week so that it doesn't expire while we figure this out. 🙂

@jean @activatelearn When using Sign in with Apple, you usually get a special email address that forwards to your real email address. You can find this on your iPhone under Settings → click on your name → Password & Security → Apps Using Your Apple ID. Then copy/paste that into Micro.blog to sign in. If it doesn't work, send us an email and I can look up your account.

@manton Whoa. I had no idea of that function. Okay, I learned something new and I'm in. Thank you for the extension too. I'll have a bit of play.
