You Need a Website and Email List, you can't rely on social media algorithms or policies can change. So you need to build a website or blog and start email marketing and growing an email list to keep access to your audience. Don't rely on social media. Rely on yourself. Email Marketing and Website Building are not something most social media influences and content creators want to do, because social media is free and comes with traffic. But you never know when you will lose access to your audience and that is why you need your own website and email list to keep that access to the audience you built long term.
I’ve noticed that @AeonMag does this. It would definitely be cool to see other outlets practicing this too.
Installed the Webmentions plugin for WordPress. Really digging it, even with just a little bit of experience with it so far. Micro.blog’s support for it is okay
Micro.blog is one of the best IndieWeb friendly services out there to replace some of these platforms with a user friendly set up. https://indieweb.org/Quick_Start delineates some other services like i.haza.website, Pine.blog, and Typlog which have some great features too depending on what you’re looking for. If you’ve got someone with some modest technical chops to run a small service for you and some friends, Known can be an awesome option too.

What a fun film. The monkey actually requested that we finally watch it, though she ran away and hid for various portions for a total of about 10-15 minutes.
Some interesting cultural Celtic references hiding in here too.
- Various accents
- Spiked hair (referenced in Caesar?)
- Blue faces of the Picts
- Art references
- Music references
- Some small viking touches
- Stone circles being important (but poorly portrayed here for their real uses)
It also serves to help visually indicate that your site supports the protocol if you don’t have a button/badge for it that points to something like https://mike.rockwell.mx/wp-json/webmention/1.0/endpoint. For those that care or are in-the-know there are manual services like https://telegraph.p3k.io/send-a-webmention or http://mention-tech.appspot.com/ which could be used as well.
On some sites I follow, I use those boxes about once or twice a month. I use it a bit more frequently on my own site to manually send myself webmentions from other sites that don’t send them, but which I come across either randomly or via refbacks.
In this class, you’ll learn about some of the new technologies that scholars are using for humanities research. We’ll look at the history and affordances of these tools, asking which possibilities each enables and which each excludes. We’ll also examine the history and current...
Greg McVerry will appreciate it and many of the curated resources which he may be able to remix and reuse.
