Ending my micro.blog trial. There are some interesting premises underlying the design of the service but:
1. ActivityPub interoperability is buggy;
2. I couldn't get Twitter cross-posting to work;
3. Apart from WebMentions, the social aspects are a bit too minimal;
4. I'd prefer to self-host, not just link a domain name to a hosted service.
I was willing to trade on one or even two of those, but all four make for a platform that doesn't really serve the purpose I had in mind.
If anyone knows of a lightweight, self-hosted, single-user blog/microblog package that federates AND works with Webmentions, I'd appreciate the tip.
@fruechtchen I ran across that before, but it didn't look like it was ready for deployment. Have you tried running an instance?
@lrhodes hmm, I need to look into ActivityPub for Saisho🤔
