Welcome New Micro Bloggers

It’s good to see new accounts and activity on micro.blog. I hope a reasonable proportion stick around.

The best thing to remember about micro.blog is that it is a personal blog host as much as it is a social network. Blogs are a permanent place for your writing, and in my opinion, this makes them more weighty, and less transient, than tweets. It provides an opportunity to build a corpus of thoughts in the form of text, pictures, video and audio over time.

Slowly but surely you end up with years of posts that you can look back upon - and link to.

Micro.blog is not Twitter, it’s not Mastodon, and that is its strength.
