💬 Things We Left in the Old Web

Replied to Things We Left in the Old Web (kickscondor.com)
The trouble is that Reddit has become the Big Blog. You are welcome to post your stuff there. But it’s usually in gray and white with a little blue—so that I lose a sense of who I’m reading exactly, who they are and where they call home. Reddit isn’t keen on a link to your blog without an acceptable amount of foreplay. You’re not yourself, you’re a Redditor—ten to twelve letters with a little bit of flair, maybe a cake, maybe a gold star. Could I be so lucky.
Interesting reflections Condor. I have been wondering a while what the IndieWeb could look like in the future. A part of me likes the idea of reading and commenting on your site away from the silos. For example, I subscribe to Chris Aldrich’s #IndieWeb feed and read it via Inoreader. I guess this is my black and white with a bit of blue. The irony is that my site is grey and white with a little bit of yellow. Maybe I need more colour?

  1. Well, yeah, I’m not sure how many bloggers like to spend time designing their
    blog. And if it’s all about the writing and communication for you—that
    makes sense! I don’t think it all needs to be organized and pretty, neither
    was the Old Web.

    For me, I want to draw you to my blog where the post layout is preserved
    and you can feel like you’re visiting my little letterpress. To that end:
    thanks for saying hi!
