My Micro Blog Setup

Now that Manton Reece has Micro.blog up and running for Kickstarter backers, it’s time to fine tune my setup to take advantage of the site. I am looking forward to learning more from the micro.blog community (which looks great so far) and Manton’s upcoming book on microblogging.

Here’s what I have so far…

  • WordPress backend (Webmention and Semantic Linkbacks plugins installed)
  • IFTTT set to post Instagram photos to WordPress, as well as tweet all posts (formatting based on category)
  • The site is connected to my Micro.blog profile, so status posts made there flow to WordPress and eventually Twitter.

The Micro.blog service really has me excited to blog more and most importantly, helps return us to what made the web so freaking amazing in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Thanks Manton! Looking forward to see where this all goes…
