  Discovering the IndieWeb - Craig Burgess

When I was promoting the last Homebrew Website Club on Twitter (https://twitter.com/JamieTanna/status/1138339357121744897), a friend of Craig's tweeted to mention to him about it. We then spent a couple of days talking about it - and boom, Craig is now running his own Homebrew Website Club on 18th July (https://getdoingthings.com/homebrew-website-club-barnsley-1/).

Last night Craig posted this great post about joining the community and with some great explanations for newbies. Welcome, Craig!

Correctly using bookmarks (instead of reposts)

As I've embraced indie post types, such as reposts, I've noticed that actually I've been using them wrong.

Looking at https://indieweb.org/bookmark#Repost it appears I've been conflating a "retweet" on Twitter with a "repost", thinking they were the same. Alas, they are not, and it makes more sense to be a bookmark.

I've since updated the posts using the wrong type and will get things right next time!

Why www.jvt.me?

Why is this site www.jvt.me? Why do I use www.? All will be explained.

Extending www.jvt.me to allow for other post types

Announcing support for posting notes to my website.

Welcome to my first https://indieweb.org/note! Notes are short-form content that will be purely plain text (for now!) and are similar to tweets on Twitter or toots on Mastodon, but won't be size limited.

I've been wanting to creating other post types since starting to use https://indieweb.org/Microsub and having a social feed. I've found that I want to interact with other posts, such as like or repost others' content, much as I would do with Twitter.

Discoverability of notes currently aren't super amazing, but I'm tackling it as part of https://gitlab.com/jamietanna/jvt.me/issues/457 because adding these post types was a large enough piece of work.

With this note, I'll now be able to https://indieweb.org/bookmark, https://indieweb.org/like, https://indieweb.org/reply, https://indieweb.org/repost, and https://indieweb.org/rsvp.

RSVPs are an interesting one, because the end goal I want is for my RSVPs to be syndicated from this site to i.e. Meetup.com.

I'm hoping to work on bringing https://indieweb.org/Micropub support to this site, too, but as it's a static site with https://gohugo.io and hosted on https://gitlab.com with a full build/test/deploy pipeline, it'll be a little less straightforward, and slower, than other solutions.

I've designed the content schema to be Micropub-first, as I want to be writing these posts using a Micropub client, rather than my usual workflow. I've made the source files JSON files (which Hugo natively supports) which makes them easily machine writeable - hopefully it'll teach me to prioritise my Micropub support so I don't have to manually write JSON!

In terms of licensing, I'm going to start by them in line with my posts, as http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/legalcode, but down the line I may look at other licenses.
