Going IndieWeb

I’m dabbling in IndieWeb for some time now but didn’t fully embrace it [yet]. There was no real need since I’m running my own blog for years so I’m already half-way there. It is a thing tho especially for people that are simply tired of not owning their content any more.

I noticed that a lot of publications I wrote myself over the last years are simply forgotten and burried in some silo. Ever wrote an article on say FB? That’s basically lost after just a week. Nobody will ever find or read [or even search for] it again.

It’s similar with publication platforms. They arise and pass by in such a short time nowadays that it’s hard to even keep even track of.

So I decided to revive my own blog. That was when I stumbled about IndieWeb that scratches exactly this itch. Looks like I’m not the only one. Jlelse, for example, seems to go all in (even in a remarkable short time).
