The busier I am, the more time I find for (micro)blogging
Short status updates that may end up elsewhere, too.
My feed reader is an important part of my morning routine, but it also serves another purpose: to keep regular subscription content out of my inbox.

Right now is the best time for anyone who wants to get involved with Twenty Twenty-One to do so.
Just added a tiny new feature to “Share on Mastodon.” After a post is published, the meta box will now display a link to the corresponding Mastodon status. There’s also the possibility to forget the Mastodon URL, allowing anyone to again share their post (the next time it’s updated). Fun fact: this isn’t new per se, but previously required fiddling with a hidden custom field. New version’s not in the WordPress repo, yet. I’ll try to push it tomorrow or so.

Also, and I hate to say this, comparing page load times for a static site on the one hand and WordPress + a page caching plugin on the other makes little sense. In both cases, you’re loading static HTML.
You can achieve the same performance by putting a great CDN like Cloudflare on top of WordPress, and your life will be infinitely easier when you want to add dynamic features like a store or comments.

It is time to consider some standards on design-related class names and provide a framework that all themes can use.
Anyway, if you’ve got both a h-feed and an RSS feed—you’ve probably got more than one, which is great—for pretty much the same items, and they’re both reasonably error-free and understandable, I’m gonna follow the h-feed. (There’s occasional errors in my microformatted HTML, too, which I’ll then rectify, and so on. It’s sort of unavoidable and no biggie.)

Because, why not?
Facebook and Instagram will be dropping unauthenticated oEmbed support on October 24, breaking content across millions of websites.
I keep messing up reposts. :-(
If I was considering Jamstack for a particular project, and the grand total really was twelve services, I probably would reconsider, particularly if I could reach for a tool like WordPress and bring it down to one.

What’s the next product that will inspire this kind of user ownership through theming?
Just FYI: you can use Jetpack without connecting it to a WP.com account. You won’t be able to use the CDN, Protect or Publicize modules, but its Custom Post Types, social menus, Markdown support and a whole bunch of other things will work just fine. (It’s called “debug mode,” which is a bit of a misnomer.)
Does intense patriotism ever translate into prosocial behaviors like conservation or trying to reduce the spread of a deadly virus, or does it only exist to rationalize bloodlust
