This is going to be a long one, so the short version is summed up in this screenshot:
That's from the top of this page: unicyclic.com/indieweb, which is a feed combined from different sources, commonly referred to as a planet. Up until now I've been adding new feeds to that page as people join th...

Definitely a contender for quote of the day.
The live stream for IndieWebSummit 2019 is now up on Twitch. We should be ready to go at 10:05 am (Pacific).
Some amazing documentation.
Welcome to the gang!
If it helps to have some company, I seem to recall Christophe Duchamp running a Mastodon instance for French-speaking IndieWeb users which he’s been documenting.
I know there are a handful of us interested in better documenting some IndieWeb pathways for those who are less technical. For a while I’ve been hacking away at some pieces particularly for WordPress at https://indieweb.org/User:Boffosocko.com/wordpress-draft. I’m sure you’ll run into many of the others as well.
Custom WordPress admin columns can be pretty helpful for quickly viewing, and managing, your content from the main edit screen. So why not take the action up a notch by making your columns sortable?
I know that David Shanske has some work like this on his roadmaps for some of the IndieWeb plugin back ends, so I’m tagging him in the offhand chance that he can swipe some code and borrow the examples.
For fun, we can use this to estimate the total number of webmentions sent in the wild to date. We previously estimated that we hit 1M somewhere around 2017-12-27, at a rate of ~929 new webmentions per day. At that time, ~95% of all webmentions had come from Bridgy, 880 per day.
Since then, Bridgy lost Facebook and Google+, which accounted for ~53% of its webmention volume. We know it’s sent 1,356,878 webmentions total as of today.If we assume non-Bridgy webmention growth has continued apace, from 48 per day at the end of 2017 to 77 per day now, that would add ~53k before then, plus ~33K since, for a total of ~1.44M sent to date, plus or minus a few thousand. Let’s keep it up!
This summer marks the one-year anniversary of acquiring my domain through St. Norbert’s “Domain of One’s Own” program Knight Domains. I have learned a few important lessons over the past year about what having your own domain can mean.
This was also posted to /en/indiewebpoetry. For this Connected Writing Activity — which is taking place rather randomly as a test of something new, so pardon the odd nature of the post —…
There have been quite a few articles recently about the importance of the personal site, and the blogging community. It’s a sentiment I’m super excited about. Rian Van Der Merwe has probably the simplest point. Blogs are the front page of the internet, and it’s their freedom that gives them ...
