Bookmarked https://jamesg.blog/2020/09/15/privacy-social-media-and-this-website.html.

Feels ironic to be bookmarking this, on my site. That said, there’s a reason I’ve created separate feeds for separate post types, and I do try to stay off the mainstream social networks.

I implemented support for bookmarks and likes and replies because these are commonplace on the IndieWeb. I understand why. Many people still use social media and use their website as a method of syndication. This is not me. I left social media [earlier this year].

This way of sharing (properly curated) bookmarks probably is the way to go. ’Til I have time, though, I’m going to have to do it the quick (and dirty) way.

I like [Ana Rodriguez’] approach to bookmarks. She writes one post every month with all of the articles she has bookmarked.

Quickly created this WordPress plugin that basically introduces a short-form CPT—well, two, but you don’t necessarily have to use ‘em both—and maps Micropub entries to it. That’s it. How’s this relate to Post Kinds? It doesn’t. I like how it keeps WP Admin (and permalink URLs) really neat and all, but there’s no meta boxes, and no markup gets generated for you. (Want to add, e.g., u-in-reply-to in there? Gonna have to do that by hand.) https://github.com/janboddez/indieweb-custom-post-types

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.)
