Looking at recent resource usage for this blog with #ActivityPub and #WPFriends enabled, and I think it’s time to migrate to a better solution. I’ve been wanting to learn more cloud, so this would give me an excuse.
Haven’t posted here in a bit. Pulled away a little, to my fault. Really want to work on a few outstanding things, like trying to get a few reply #webmention features working that seemed stuck last time I worked on them, as well as try to get the Following number populated if I can figure out a good method to determine it via the #WPFriends plugin.
I mentioned last week that I’ve installed the SemPress theme to take advantage of IndieWeb features like microformat labeling to enable parsing in webmentions, a kind of new-era trackback but better. Well, it’s more than just that. As I’m sure most people reading this are aware, there’s been a lot of activity in the world of social media in the past month or so. A new owner at Twitter, people moving to different platforms, and Elon Musk having a bit of a meltdown. All of this has gotten me thinking about the future of my own online presence and has encouraged me to look into revving this blog back up and using it as a hub for my own content of all types.
