Hi all, so far so good getting onboarded to Micro.blog! I am coming as a once-upon-a-time and short-term user of Revue, obviously with a bit of a gap since my last time publishing.
First off, the cross-posting is an awesome feature and something I’d really wish I had control of earlier - very excited for that feature.
Besides that, here are the high-level goals I’m looking to achieve based on what I got working in the past:
- I will publish new articles to my own domain, using a custom publishing workflow, and want to share these across Micro blog, Twitter, Bluesky, etc. for every new article. This does not have to be automated I just want to understand the most sensible approach. My guess so far is one “unified” post from Micro blog that cross-posts to other platforms and I should have the appropriate content on my site to render previews. Any other approaches and/ or details to consider?
- Typically I add some high-level context/ less formal commentary in these posts than is in the main content. So I liked having a gallery of these posts on a subdomain of my own site. Would this be done using a redirect to my /Archive and my preferred subdomain?
- I liked that with Revue I’d be able to send emails newsletter-style with each post, it looks like that will be possible here. Cool! One thought is: why wouldn’t users be able to choose email frequency options vs. me? Also, if I want to tag individual posts to be included or not in these summaries, I simply make a category for that?
Thanks for a cool product and any help. I’m sure I’ll have more questions once I get my feet on the ground!
