Over the last 4-5 years I have tried to keep my site as minimal as possible and use it as a way to share ideas, thoughts and photos. The site is then syndicated around the internet1.
However even though I syndicate to Micro.blog, Twitter, Medium, WordPress, Mastodon and Tumblr I do wonder what the point is?2
For you to grow on any platform you have to be an active member in each of them. I am definitely not in that space. I will interact on occasion but I prefer to work on my little part of the internet and keep pushing things out. What happens with it all is beyond my control.
The only site that I would have liked to be able to cross post was Instagram, but alas that site is hostile to any type of external interaction, and also it’s all about the TikTok-like videos so erm, fuck Instagram. ↩︎
On Twitter there is some interaction, but I also know that my family follows along there. ↩︎
