🎙️ The latest guest on Micro Monday is Ton Zylstra, who just celebrated his 17th year of blogging:
He works as a consultant, assisting governments and private entities in being open by design, as part of a more comprehensive data governance approach. Together with his wife, he organizes a “birthday unconference,” a unique gathering which is part conference, part celebration, combining public and person interests.
📚 We’re past the halfway point for NaNoWriMo and Microblogvember. It’s never too late to get into a daily blogging routine. Writing short posts more often removes the pressure you might feel about publishing longer blog posts.
💬 Even if not everyone is following Microblogvember, many bloggers are committing to writing every day. CJ Chilvers set a theme for his posts:
I’m going to post every day to this blog for the entire month of November on one subject: anxiety. More specifically, I’m going to post 30 practical tactics to decrease your anxiety, one per day.
💬 Thanks to the community for offering ideas for how we could improve Micro.blog to be even better for live-blogging. We’re always looking for suggestions that can build on Micro.blog’s foundation in unique ways. @bix said:
It would be useful sometimes for how I blog if there were a built-in way to post an update to a blog post other than editing the post, e.g. maybe if I replied to one of my own blog posts here in the social feed, it gets added as an update on the original post, with its own timestamp.
