  • 🚨So, what’s up with Micro.blog this January? Well, quite a lot, if you ask me. Here’s everything new in this short video. Tell me if this is useful. πŸ™πŸ» cc @manton @jean

  • Should I write Micro.blog or Microblog in everything I write about this platform. That is the question. I’m always pondering which form to use. Help me @manton 😩

  • Following my request to close my Adobe Stock account, I finally got my money for selling some of my pictures through Adobe Stock. I made a big 20 US$ directly dropped to my PayPal account. πŸ™‚

  • Thanks to the recently introduced “one-page” site feature with Micro.blog coupled with a redirect for the root of the site ("/")1, now someone hitting “photos.numericcitizen.me” will end up on my Pixelfed profile page! I find this clever! 😌 More details in this week-end video! πŸ™‚

    1. Also a feature of Micro.blog, just in case you asked. ↩︎

  • Introducing the Numeric Citizen Hub, a brand new landing page1. Thanks to the recently introduced β€œOne-page website” feature on Micro.blog, you can now learn about the places I share my creativity right from a single place2. Enjoy.

    1. It will replace my Linktr.ee page once my subscription ends, in December of 2024. πŸ™‚ ↩︎

    2. I know that some of you might think: well, another website from Numeric Citizen! πŸ˜ƒ ↩︎

  • This is how my current avatar came to be. πŸ‘€

  • 5x traffic spike on Gumroad for The Craft Bible. Saturday, I bought a dedicated domain name for this subscription on Gumroad. Coincidence? πŸ€” I’ll have to see the coming days to make a final judgment.

  • I’m thinking of leaving Write.as. Last year, I purchased a 5-year subscription during a promotion, intending to use it extensively. However, I haven’t used it as much as I anticipated. My main focus was writing about the Ukraine war. I could migrate this to Micro.blog. Yet, I’m concerned that my views on the conflict might offend some people here, as not everyone is interested in politics. πŸ€”πŸ§

  • Hello Madonna! I don’t go often to see shows like this one. Can’t wait! #montreal

  • Installed the brand new Micro.blog plugin to enable the /newsletters page on my website. This enables an index page of past newsletters that were sent to my subscribers! Thanks to @manton!

  • My Micro.blog timeline being a bit too busy to my liking, I decided to disable replies from people I don’t follow. It’s much better now. I might turn it back on eventually. This option shouldn’t be in the account section but should be more easily accessible. Would like to get a static toolbar at the bottom.

  • I’m a bit sad πŸ˜” that this post, “Dear Micro.blog - How Can I Help” didn’t get the expected traction. I don’t know why. Maybe it fell between the cracks of a busy Micro.blog timeline. But this morning, I’m trying something different by explicitly tagging my virtual friends cc @jean @manton

  • Made a tweak to this blog: using the Footer field of the Design section (on a Micro.blog feature), I added a footer to each individual post that adds links to my other websites and my Mastodon handle. It’s a mixture of HTML and CSS. I took advantage of MacGPT to learn what was needed. I know a bit about HTML but not enough about CSS. My “assistant” helped me, again.

  • Currently studying the PARA method for a future video. The funny thing is that without knowing it, I organize my data inside Craft, using similar principles.

  • A big one is coming toward us. In Montreal, it will be a mixture of snow and rain, limiting the total accumulation thanks to a strong influx of hot air from the southeast. Up north of St-Lawrence River, this could be totally different with more than 40 CM of snow! And winds! Can’t wait for our first “northeaster” of the season! Stay tuned for more comments about this meteorological event!

  • Appreciation of the day: putting freshly recharged AirPods Pro in the ear, while they are still warm, is in itself worth the price!

  • 1000 subscribers goal achieved! Six month later than I would have hoped. Better late than never!

  • I still struggle with the idea of writing posts directly on Mastodon or Bluesky. Replying to others who write to me directly there is ok, though, if I can’t reply from Micro.blog.

  • Merry Christmas to all my followers! πŸŽ…πŸ» In other news, I fell into a rabbit hole when I started looking at my Adobe Creative Cloud migration1. The process is far easier than I thought but it takes a little while to move files around. I could complete it before my next scheduled payment on January 8th. That is one of my 2024 goals!

    1. I’ll be moving out of it so that I can focus on the Photomator / Pixelmator duo instead. ↩︎
