Don’t Worry, Blog Happy

Om Malik:

When I started blogging back in 2000, I never felt the pressure of making it perfect. And then as my career evolved — from professional journalist to a blogger to a founder of a blog-based media company, the pressure to get it right every single time started to make it difficult to blog. I began to post “pieces” and forgot that blogging for me is nothing more than “thinking out loud.” I will be wrong, dumb and sometimes unusual, along the way. And that is my objective for 2019.

This is why I like Micro.blog—it’s a perfect place for thinking out loud, or quietly, or however I want. 🙂

At first, the fixed window size of the Micro.blog app for Mac niggled me. But now I can appreciate the fact that it doesn’t need to hog screen space in order to do its job. The clue was in the name the whole time! 🙂

Annoyingly, there isn’t a way that I can see to edit my posts via the Micro.blog app for Mac. Am I missing something?

Hmm, it turns out that I need to restart the Mac in Safe Mode, then enter my iCloud password when prompted. And now Micro.blog app is working too. Bizarre. Oh well, good to know my tech-fu is still strong.

And now Micro.blog on iOS doesn’t appear to be refreshing its timeline.

Today is turning out to be a strange and frustrating day…

Ok, it looks like Micro.blog for Mac is forgetting its authorisation somehow? Every time I relaunch it, I have to sign in via the website. I did a clean install, too, so I’m pretty sure it’s not something on my machine causing the problem.

Huh, I uninstalled the Micro.blog app for Mac, then reinstalled the latest version, still getting a HTTP 500 error message when I try to access the timeline. Not sure what’s going on. At least I can still post from the app.

Just tried out sharing a link to Micro.blog app on iPad via Share Sheet. The only problem is that there’s no way to refer back to the article, because the Share Sheet obscures it. So it works best if you don’t want to add anything, or have something short and pithy in mind.

FYI: If you’re using Inoreader to follow your Micro.blog feed

Feed filter in Inoreader for Micro.blog feed to strip out replies

Yet another reason why I’m glad I switched over from Feedly for my RSS needs.
