OK   and , I have an official announcement.

John @whiskeydragon1 and I are getting married on June 19 2021.

There’ll be something virtual for those who can’t make it, and we’re still trying to figure out accessible wedding invitations because there is no way I am having a wedding that some of my friends can’t participate in.

We’re in the initial stages of planning, so we don’t have every detail worked out yet. But I am so happy and excited.

Best wishes Amanda! That’s great news!

Brid.gy can handle that for you.
Read Reflections on HAX Camp (Throw Out The Manual)
I spent the last 2 days in a whirlwind trip driving down to Durham, North Carolina to meet up with a motley crew of web developers and talk all things web components at HAX Camp [https://hax.camp]. I came away with my mind reeling and trying to stay above water on all the interesting stuff I was seeing and hearing in hopes of taking something tangible away. But let me back up for a second and explain why I would end up at an event like that, much less why Reclaim Hosting would be interested in s
I still need to spend some time digging into HAX. 
Read Update SimplePie to Latest Version and possibly include PHP-MF2 (core.trac.wordpress.org)
It is the first release in 3 years and has a large number of bug fixes. It also is the first version that includes support for new types of feeds as described by the IndieWebCamp community. These feeds are made up of h-feed and h-entry microformats, which allows the feed to be parsed from the html rather than a separate xml file. SimplePie will now detect when it finds such a feed and parse them when it finds the php-mf2 parser available.
Wow! Look at the movement on this finally! Way to stick with it David Shanske!
Read Een sociaal netwerk via je nieuwsbrief en eigen site. by Frank Meeuwsen (Digging the Digital)
Ik bedacht me zojuist dat er nóg een fijne bijkomstigheid is nu ik mijn OPEN nieuwsbrief op mijn eigen site publiceer en verstuur als nieuwsbrief. Ik gebruik webmentions op mijn site, een gratis plugin voor WordPress en open protocol wat weinig stuk maakt. Elke keer als ik een nieuwsbrief verstuur,...
Replied to Automatically sending Webmentions from a static website by James Mead (jamesmead.org)
I'd also like to find a way to say thank you to Aaron Parecki who built webmention.io and Ryan Barrett, Kyle Mahan, et al who built brid.gy. However, I can't see a way to do either and, indeed, the latter explicitly say "We don't need donations, promise." 
In the past, I’ve heard many of them say to make a donation or support the IndieWeb Open Collective instead.
Read Automatically sending Webmentions from a static website by James Mead (jamesmead.org)
Using Actionsflow to automate the sending of Webmentions using webmention.app
This is an interesting way for static sites to automatically send webmentions using RSS.

Perhaps it’s something I might use in conjunction with my work with TiddlyWiki, MediaWiki, or my Obsidian.md notebook projects.

Bookmarked Getting Started With Webmention and NextJS by Monica PowellMonica Powell (aboutmonica.com)
This past week I had the pleasure of being on the Learn with Jason Show to show how to add Webmention functionality to a NextJS website. Webmentions let you pull tweets, other blogs, and other activity from around the web into your site? It was fun live pair programming the implementation of webmentions. Check out the video or read some of the highlights below!
Thanks for writing this up and bundling it with the video Monica! I can’t wait to see how you puzzle out sending Webmentions automatically as well.

Monica notes that they had issues with an .app TLD, which sounds a bit like Max’s previous issue with the .dev TLD. Any chance this is the case Ryan?

Liked Unsubscribing from YouTube's recommender by Marty McGuireMarty McGuire (martymcgui.re)
First, some backstory. But feel free to skip to the good stuff! With topics ranging from media and social critiques, to making and tech topics that I care about, to death itself, regular content from creators that post on YouTube have been a part of my daily life for the last several years. This is...
Impressive how many hoops one has to jump through to get this type of simple functionality. This is the absolute definition of a silo.

Twelve: Webmention for backlinks

For my backlinks I’m relying on the W3C recommendation Webmention spec which I’m implementing with the WordPress Webmention plugin. This allows me to cross link my own posts to look like “comments” or “replies”, but it allows others to ping me and interact with my public posts and their syndicated copies.

Need a primer on what webmentions are and what they can be used for? I’ve got you covered:

Nine: Micropub for collecting data

The Micropub plugin helps me by creating an endpoint on my site for quickly and easily capturing lots of data. IFTTT, Zapier, Integromat, n8n can all help to aggregate this data too.

Here are some more in-depth details about how I use some of these tools and recipes/walk-throughs so you can too: Using IFTTT to syndicate (PESOS) content from social services to WordPress using Micropub.

I send Webmentions for reads and listens to notify authors, but I’m waiting for reading/podcast apps that will allow me to authenticate and make read/listen posts via micropub automatically, or versions that will send even generic notifications via webmention.

The nice part is that this sort of model allows the user to collect this data and send these notifications on an as-desired basis to the publisher.
