Read I Overcame Glossophobia at WordCamp Riverside by Joseph Dickson (WordCamp Riverside 2018)
After attending my first conference at WordCamp Orange County in 2014 and watching the volunteer speakers passion for design, business, and web development I craved sharing my own experiences, but my fear of public speaking always kept me from submitting a talk.

    1. Be sure to add in the Semantic Linkbacks plugin as well to display prettier Webmentions on your site (especially if you link it with Brid.gy for replies from Twitter et al). You mileage on them may vary depending on how well supported your theme is with microformats. I’ve got a video walk through if you need it or it helps: http://boffosocko.com/2018/04/27/setting-up-wordpress-for-indieweb-use/ and I just heard from WordCamp Riverside that they’re going to let me talk about all of it in depth in November. 🙂

    2. Joe, I tweaked the received response to make it a “reply” instead of a “mention”. You could have forced it to do this by adding a semantic microformat class="u-in-reply-to" on the link to my post and the Semantic Linkbacks plugin on my end would have parsed it and displayed it as a native comment instead of a facepiled avatar “mention”. If you want to go all-in, the Post Kinds plugin will add some of these sorts of microformats for you automatically to allow you to bookmark, reply, etc. to posts (as well as give you a bit of a reply context if you like). It’s a bit like the old WordPress Formats on acid, but takes the social media-type posts to their logical conclusion.

  1. Nice it worked withoutneeding to drop in the url on Chris’ post.

    1. Pretty slick right? It works somewhat like pingbacks and trackbacks did, but the display is the nicer looking version one would expect/want instead of the janky output they used to have. The spec also means that my site checks yours to verify the link before potentially displaying it (one can still moderate them before posting automatically as well as use Akismet).
