I have it set up to pull my YouTube videos back to my website as blog posts that embed the YouTube video. I mostly consider my YouTube content separate right now, mainly because I am actually trying to play the YouTube game.

I think I saw your first reply in my micr…

Thanks for the link to you video feed. I’ve added it to my RSS reader!

The empty webmention is weird. I’ll need to look into that. Thank you!

@MrHenko I’m using the daily snapshots of the server (Digital Ocean) as my backup method.

@jamesvandyne Is that something your creating manually or is it automated. I’m on Linode so I’ll need to check is something similar is available there.

@MrHenko Plugins. I think the one I use is WP-Backup.

@jeremycherfas I’m searching for it now but I can’t find it in the WP plugin directory. Do you have a link?

@MrHenko inte alls 😜 Jag har inget jag inte skulle kunna göra om plus att jag litar på att Websupport har en fungerande backup. Använde JetPack tjänsten några år men ville bort från WordPress

@jemostrom Och då är Webbsupport någon sorts ”shared host”, eller hur? Jag kör på en VPS hos Linode, så de tar så vitt jag vet inga backuper på min ”maskin”.

Någon särskild anledning till att du ville bort från WP?

My wishlist for Micro.Blog:
* a way to load new posts but keep my place in the timeline. Every morning I have endless scrolling to see what folks posted overnight.
* default to the aspect ratio of an included photo, not to square.
* let the Mac app upload videos and sound files.

I agree with this, particularly the first one.

Yeah! I’ve been giving sneak peeks on my livestreams, but once I get things a little more polished off I’ll do a proper video on it! (Wait til you see what I have planned for the ceiling lights!)

Now I’m intrigued! I don’t have a nearly as ambitious setup as you but I feel like I’m learning a whole lot from your videos that I’m able to use in my own online teaching.

Do you publish your YouTube content on your own website as well, or do you link to it from somewhere, or are YouTube a separate thing from your other stuff?

And on a side note, did you get a proper webmention from my blog from my last post or did you pick it up somewhere else like micro.blog? Clearly you did find it since you replied to it, but I don’t see my post as a response on your original post. I’m redoing my WP theme and I think I’ve broken a few things regarding webmentions.

If too many people feel this way, the US will face four more years of Trump. Please, regardless of your feelings for Biden, remember what the alternative is. Hint: It is not four years of whatever your favourite is, unless the favourite is Trump.

@maique you know why? We want to get rid of the stuff but it feels wrong throwing it away 😜

@jemostrom I was going to write exactly the same thing. :)

I could have given him my old iPhone 6, but I decided to go a little less digital. Zane is fascinated by animals and creatures and nature in general. One of the ‘annoying’ habits he’s developed is asking us to ‘take a picture’ of bugs and beetles and ants. After the 200th fly or whatever i…

I think that was a good choice. I gave Iris, my five year old, a similar old Canon point-and-shoot and it’s amazing to see how she uses it. Clearly she’s been watching a lot of vlogs because she keeps going around the house and filming herself talking to an audience.
