For those of us wanting to leave Twitter and other silos behind and focus more on microblogging on our own domains, discovering new people to follow can be a little tricky. Manton Reece has a Discover tab on Micro.blog to find people, but the service is still in its infancy.
Colin Devroe suggested a #FollowFriday movement. I’ll start off with two bloggers I’m enjoying. Feel free to use webmentions for your own lists! Please correct me if anyone else has started this, I haven’t had great connectivity for the last few weeks.
- Colin Walker: I talked to Colin a few times through the Indie Microblogging Slack. Not only is his blog interesting and original, he also helped me out with a few of my own microblog‘s functions and tweaks. I’m also inspired by his microcasting, something I’ve been putting off doing. He recently hit 1000 posts but I missed it until today! Thanks Colin!
- Colin Devroe: The person who suggested a #FollowFriday should definitely be followed! The first thing I noticed about Colin’s blog was his use of Anders Noren’s Davis theme1. It looks like he has done a ton of work to get Davis functional for multiple post formats. Colin’s post about some features in iOS 11 was featured on Jim Dalrymple and Dave Mark’s The Loop.
We could also pick another day, but I love Colin’s idea. What do you all think?
