This post is a test. I like the idea of owning my content, instead of leaving it inside corporate silos like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Webmentions are a cool W3C recommendation for mentioning/replying to another page on the Internet from your own site. I see it as a standardised way to do what bloggers used to do in the old days anyway, before all these fancy comment forms and social networks.
This post should also be automatically posted to, and collect comments and retweets from Twitter using Bridgy, if the works as advertised. Let’s see.
If you want to try out these things, start by installing the IndieWeb plugin for WordPress, or read more on IndieWeb.org if you’re using some other system.
