Maybe Webmention can be thought of as less of a “building block” and more like a glue. You can do so many things with glue, like combining a bunch of planks into a table, or building a parade float sculpture with papier-mâché, or doctoring the photo in a passport!
I have unticked the boxes now, but am now wondering what would be the best way to reinstate my self-pings. Maybe I am misusing the technology, but I use self pings to link to and build upon past posts.
Fortunately, Bridgy users can log into Instagram legitimately, in their own browsers, so a browser extension lets us piggyback on that legit usage and scrape out the data they want us to have. Shh, don’t tell, it’s our little (open source) secret.
Just when I thought I had enough sites, I decided to create another one. A feed that could be used in a platform like Micro.blog. My intent this time was to create a space where I could reclaim my pieces on the web. In part I was inspired by Tom Woodward’s API driven portfolio, as well as Alan Levine’s concept of co-claiming.
I was also interested in exploring the possibility of WordPress beyond the standard post format and the implications that this has with the choice of themes. Associated with this, I wondered if there was a possibility of automating the sharing of content created elsewhere, such as videos and images.
I have long form writing. Here then is my attempt to summarise my workflow., however this focused more on my
Clearly I collect pieces from around the web, including various newsletters. However, the majority of my content comes from Inoreader through which I have subscribed to my feeds. From there, I either respond or save posts to Pocket to read and respond later.
Although I have tinkered with Micropub clients, I have not found one that fits with what I want in a post. For example, I like have titles with emojis, therefore I actually populate the slug. John Johnston has some code to strip this out, but I am yet to tinker with this.
In regards to writing my actual posts, I use Post Editor Button to add HTML snippets, such as embedding audio and adding in Microformats where required.
I also use a range of sites to capture quotes and evidence. Whether it be Hypothes.is, Diigo and Quotebacks. I know I should be more structured with this, but I am not.
In regards to POSSE, I use a range of methods, including SNAP, Bridgy for Micro.Blog. However, more often than note I manually write responses and add the corresponding link to my list of syndication links.
Hope that helps.
class="u-in-reply-to"to display the ‘mentions’ are replies. However, this all depends on the post.
Add a directory of webmention authors using a short code – colin-walker/webmention-directory

I think that you have touched upon my only concern/frustration with Micropub/sub Readers. They do not seem to populate Response Proporties box. Although it is far from ideal, I prefer to populate these and even add my own custom quote. I also lose control over the headings associated with responses, listens, likes etc … I agree to this as a standard, but there is a part of me that likes having a heading and an emoji to go with this. Each to there own I guess. My dream would be to be able to decide what fields are available, like a custom client that matches up with the various microformats.
The immediate goal of this project is to provide a Micropub endpoint that can be hosted on a service like Heroku, configured via files stored on a GitHub repo, and save posts back to that repo for publishing with a static site generator such as Eleventy, Hugo or Jekyll. The software is fully documented and tested.
A long term ambition is to build a tool that supports different publishing destinations, other social publishing specifications (Webmention, Microsub, ActivityPub etc.) and integrates with a range of content management systems.
