+Linsey Oglanian I would be happy to throw up a Known community for us. It has Events and RSVPs to will work well with scheduling hangouts

Other idea is just use Blogger and network together: https://drmacsspot.blogspot.com/2019/02/mrkndvs-making-indieweb-blogger-theme.html

Hello everyone,

I spent yesterday working on a version of a blogger theme compatible with IndieWeb tools like webmentions. You can see an example here: https://drmacsspot.blogspot.com/

Then using IFTT I syndicate my notes to Twitter and the tweets get displayed back on my blog as comments. Here is an example: https://drmacsspot.blogspot.com/2019/02/blog-post_88.html

The best part is not relying on social media at all. If other websites send and receive webmentions their post just show up as comments and my replies will show up on their site (Currently manually sent using box below).

Blogger can be your Google+ replacement.

To make this all work you do need proper microformats in your HTML. This is like the metadata your website carries around that you may not know about. Microformats are slightly different because they are in the HTML to make sure they are always human readable.

To add this theme you need to select "edit classic theme." Then cut and paste this theme template:

Change the information to your information. Then go to the website Bridgy and authorize your account. This enables the webmentions

Then to publish a note use no title
To publish a photo post at "u-photo" as a property to you img element so img class="u-photo"
To publish a reply post add the property "u-in-reply-to" so <a class="u-in-reply-to"
To publish a like use not title and add the property "u-like-of" <a class="u-like-of"

If you want to syndicate to Twitter you do need to create an IFTT account and choose the recipe. I set it up to only include post content and url.

There are also a lot of social web and blogging tools that take advantageof microformats. So as a blogger you get control over your meta data and built in tools.

Hey all +Blogger users Great News!!! I figured out a way to hack the classic theme to add microformats so you can play with all the #IndieWeb goodness.

I will record a tutorial tonight or tomorrow

Time to return to the web as our social network: https://drmacsspot.blogspot.com/

The web was built for fandom. It's in the DNA and the kids will dance and shake their bones.

https://quickthoughts.jgregorymcverry.com/2018/12/11/nopeno-way-indieweb-gets-that-honor-belongs

nope...no way #IndieWeb gets that honor [OG fandom]. Belongs to deadheads. Engineers stealing face staring at the Marvel of the Wall of Sound, First set lists on APRANET in the 70' online fandom first annotation...the Grateful Dead, first podcast: dead songs, JPB, me personally been trading shows on etree since 98, legal torrents, 13,000 tracks on archive.org now....download shows...friends don't let friends low bit-rate.

The vibe of the Well. The vibe of the Web...so yeah guess you are correct. The bus came by we all got on and Cowboy Neal would have been one helluva blogger.

Hey +Mark Delsing I was trying to + mention or comment on your last post. Here is a video overview: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=google%2B+indieweb we did at the last IndieWeb Google+ Diaspora Meet Up.

Happy to facilitate one again. Give us twenty minutes and we will get you and any friends on the IndieWeb.

Also working with subcultures from Tumblr on designing ways to hang together on the IndieWeb..

Bunch of us trying to figure out RPG from our blogs. Here is a game I am working on http://wmvsz.glitch.me/
Of all the G+ Apocalypse options I've seen so far, IndieWeb feels the most promising to me. The TL;DR version is that you kick it old school and set up a blog — using a domain you own on a hosting service you ideally control — and syndicate your content auto-magically out to all the social media platforms.

There's a steep learning curve, but I used to do this kind of stuff all the time. I've been poking around the control panel for the web hosting account I've had for, what, fifteen years or more and realizing that I have all the parts I need.

I dunno. There's something wonderfully dawn-of-the-web about this that really appeals​ to me.
