My wish is for the IndieWeb to enable and encourage connection between indie website publishers and readers, allowing conversations and other types of interaction. My vision is strengthening and broadening the IndieWeb community. I want the IndieWeb to be a viable alternative to social media, gradually widening the audience beyond tech-savvy folks by making the tools easier to use and more reliable.
The very best thing to keep the web partly alive is to maintain some content yourself - start a blog, join a forum and contribute to the conversation, even podcast if that is your thing. But that takes a lot of time and not everyone has the energy or the knowhow to create like this. The second best thing to do is to show your support for pages you enjoy by being nice and making a slight effort.


I just finally deployed something I've been working on for a few weeks now: a feed of my writing, posting, reading, and other various activity that lives on my website at!

I've admired the POSSE ("Publish [on your] Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere") model for a long time, but only finally found the time and energy to put something together that I'm actually happy with.

The feed is built on top of the reading list software I've been running for a few years, and it ingests posts from Citation Needed.

I can also write posts in the microblog and automatically crosspost them to Twitter/Mastodon/Bluesky, while keeping the original post on my site. Like this!

It's still super alpha, and I'm sure it will require a lot of bugfixes and future dev, but it's been really fun to work on some web software and move further in the indieweb direction.

anyone have any good suggestions for lightweight local testing when implementing ActivityPub? would be nice to test signature verification and simulate various activities without spinning up a whole local Mastodon server or prematurely deploying my super alpha software
