Micro Blog

  • I am looking into expanding this out to much more, thinking about link backs to mastodon, and/or RSS style news feeds, kind of like http://micro.blog/. I really liked Micro (hence the name of this feed), but just wanted to build it myself. I could see a bunch of self hosted micro blogs interconnected using RSS to formulate a combined feed, which would be a pretty neat way of stringing it together.
