Writing longer posts

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.

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. Add a title if you wish, or leave it blank — it’s up to you. If you add a title, it will appear on the timeline, linked to your post when you publish it.

In the macOS app, while you are composing a post, you can also choose View → Title Field from the menu to reveal the title field. (This is also helpful if you want to give a title to a post that is shorter than 280 characters.)

Even if your post is long, you are not required to have a title on Micro.blog. In the timeline, the post will be truncated to approximately 280 characters, and will have a link to the complete post on your blog.
