Owning your own short-form writing sounded like such a good idea that I supported Manton Reece’s Micro.blog project on Kickstarter months ago and it’s all now coming together: I started my own micro.blog yesterday at stuart.micro.blog.
My initial plan is to use Micro.blog for those times when Twitter isn’t enough and a full blog post is unnecessary.
- the iOS app, still in testing, is a winner
- the password_less_ login is strange and takes a bit of getting used to (I’m not quite sure that I am a fan of it)
- I like the available designs for hosted micro blogs1
- I need more time before I form a full opinion of the service
One of the designs, Hyde, is related to Lanyon, which is the base design for this site. ↩︎
