👓 A Micro.blog #FollowFriday, Part I Among the Stones

Read A Micro.blog #FollowFriday, Part I by Jimmy Baum (Among the Stones)
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.
Jimmy has added me to his list of recommendations. Perhaps I missed the webmention/notification for it while I was moving, but I saw it organically anyway–since I follow him myself. His list has several people that I also follow pretty closely, so I’m honored to be included.

It also reminds me that I ought to get to work on keeping a following list of my own or add a follow post type to my site eventually. Perhaps something to think about over WordCamp LA and IndieWebCamp NYC this weekend?

  1. A #followfriday for micro.blogs is certainly a good idea, but there’s something odd about the way Jimmy Baum’s site renders webmentions. I’m seeing Chris Aldrich’s comment — which brought me there in the first place — as “Chris Aldrich mentioned this Article on amongthestones.com”.
    Shouldn’t it be “Chris Aldrich mentioned this Article on boffosocko.com”?

  2. Jeremy, I think this was a known issue with the WordPress Semantic Linkbacks pluin and thought it got address/fixed in a recent update. If not, do file a bug at https://github.com/pfefferle/wordpress-semantic-linkbacks
    Also interesting, it looks like Independent Publisher (theme) isn’t outputting a permalink for the comments on Among The Stones either. If they’re webmentions, all the URLs point to the locations of of comment originals, which makes it harder to target individual comments with fragmentions.
