Writing longer posts

November 27, 2018

Don’t let the name fool you. While Micro.blog is focused on short posts because we think it encourages people to write more often, you can just as easily publish long-form essays or posts with multiple paragraphs.

Micro.blog uses a post’s title field to determine whether a post should be treated as a microblog post or a full blog post. When you type over 280 characters on the web or in the official iOS and macOS apps, Micro.blog will automatically reveal a title field. Just give your post a title to turn it into a full blog post.

In the macOS app, you can also choose the View menu → Title Field to show or hide the title field while writing a new post.
