Look at these spikes in https://Brid.gy traffic. Glad to see so many thinking about their website as their Google+ replacement
Wow look at the huge jumps in traffic to brid.gy https://snarfed.org/2018-11-05_bridgy-traffic-bump Seems to correlate with the Google+ announcement.

Glad to see so many folks realizing every day that your website can also be your social network.

Blogger, WordPrews.com, Medium....you don't need to know code to IndieWeb. We have solutions for you.

+Leo Laporte I found, probably with +Mike Elgan help, you block 1-2 porn images it cleans your feed. Any user does it in a community it goes away.

As a teacher scared hell out me when I opened it up in school.

Everyone I am doing another Virtual MeetUp if anyone has questions about basic blogging, feed readers, or anything IndieWeb related.

Look how I set up my classes:

A few tags and you can easily build a group function.

Of course RSS doesn't do it for real time chat with polling, but microsub is fast, and most modern readers support this spec.

But maybe going a little bit slower ain't too bad.

Here is the video from last night's intro:

Here is the slidedeck I will use in the first 10-15 minutes of the virtual IndieWeb MeetUp I am organizing:

I will do an HoA that anyone can join and we can comment across different G+ channels and Twiiter.

Hard to follow along but I always say if you can read my slides I did a poor job of designing them (or course I have to write up transcript later for accessibility with this approach but slide deck dies with first bullet point.

After that we will just hand and talk about our Google+ exit plans.

Hello everyone

I just visited Google TakeOut and selected all my g+ content for Download.

Circles come as vcards

Posts, +1, and comments come at HTML. I will try to import to my website and write a tutorial if it works..

All boils down to how messy is html and what kind of metadata is or isn't injected

*ish bc I have three kids and while 8:00 is usually bedtime things go about as smoothly as trying to set up an HoA for a live virtual meetup.

A few days ago my webmentions from Google+ started kicking in. Turns out after some poking around these are all folks with enterprise or GAFE accounts.

Clearly putting somework into G+ for Work or however it will be rebranded.
