And now IFTTT is throwing errors. No idea why. :\
Okay. I’m reintroducing IFTTT in an effort to get Webmentions pulled in through Brid.gy. But I needed to find a solution for Twitter cards. Jetpack to the rescue. I enabled publicize, then used a snippet to prevent posts from actually being sent. So Jetpack is adding my Twitter card markup and never actually syndicates.
I *think* I’ll have Webmentions pulled in from Twitter now. The syndication setup is no longer elegant, but there doesn’t appear to be anything that offers *all* the services I want in exactly the way I want it.
YouTube via RSS is so much better than the service’s built-in subscription feature.
I’ve been writing in Day One a lot less lately. Much of that energy is going into mike.rockwell.mx instead. I’m not sure if that is good or bad, really. But I should funnel that writing back into Day One using IFTTT.
I get it. But I sort-of think link previews are a net negative.
Is there actually a benefit to showing the Webmention field on your site? Does it actually get used? It feels like all of the Webmentions are automated through the protocol/API, not manually by copy and pasting a link.
I’ve turned it off for now. We’ll see.
Just got our Big Berkey water filter delivered. It doesn’t seem as imposing on the counter as I was worried it would be and the water coming out of it tastes great. I’ve only had it for a few hours, but would definitely recommend.
I might have said this already, but Micro.blog sort-of feels like the place to be right now. It syndicates to all the services I care about, let’s me gracefully publish on my own site, and uphold a lot of what I love about the open web.
