Micro.blog

I noticed that my wife was spending time on WhatsApp sharing thoughts, ideas and links. So for Christmas this year I set her up with a Micro.blog site in the hopes she would see the value in owning her stuff.

@kaa When I saw the welcome wagon conversation, based on the username and the domain name (and your inquiry about the gift link earlier), I wondered if that might be your wife :-)

Hopefully the website/micro.blog fits :-)

(It’s been fascinating to see spousal pairs here, and I think there’s probably an interesting sociological paper that could be done, looking at differences between spouses on social media, and at differences in the differences between social media and blogging/Micro.blog….)

@smokey The welcome wagon was the best part of the onboarding experience. So unique to this place, which is great. I do have some thoughts about the rest of the onboarding process which i think could be improved.

The only other couple I know is @cleverdevil and @cleverangel (love the user names).

@kaa Nice. As soon as I read couple of her posts, I thought to myself, wait a minute, moved to Copenhagen from Dubai? That sounds familiar 🙂 @yel

@kaa There are a handful that I know of; in addition to the clever couple, @Cheri and @OptikSage, @SusanB and @JezB, @Gabz and @Litzabel, @Mtt and @Kalena. And now you and @yel 👍

@kaa Glad to help fill in your following list :-)

I’ve considered it a good sign that (slowly) people are coaxing their spouses to join them here.

@macgenie Indeed—and I’d recommended them both; yikes! (I’m chalking it up to the exhausted state of my brain after these two days 🤞)
