Today marks four years on Micro.blog today. One of the best internet services that I subscribe to. What’s not to like?

  • It’s not run by a faceless corporation.
  • It gets updated constantly.
  • It’s hooked up to a number of text editors (I subscribe to Drafts just to post to my site).
  • It gets beamed everywhere. WordPress. Tumblr. Twitter. Email newsletter (which needs some TLC).
  • I use it to track my book reading. This one is an outlier feature, but I love it.
  • It transports me back in time every day to past years and what was on my mind that day (one of my favourite features and that’s a plug-in).
  • Gives me an excuse to take photos of things.

Like I said. Wild. Bring on year five.
