As it turns out, I already had at my disposal a blogging platform that fit all the needs I was looking for—micro posts easily mixed with longer blog posts—and that I was already paying for: Micro.blog. I was one of the Kickstarter backers of Manton Reece’s project back in 2017, and have been pretty much cross-posting my social media (mainly Twitter) musings to it ever since it launched. When my Kickstarter-reward plan expired, it was a no-brainer for me to keep my subscription going. The platform has steadily improved, and for where I am in my blogging life right now, it checks all the boxes I need it to.
So if you only follow me here, you need to point your browser or RSS reader to Retrophisch.net. And thanks for sticking around here all these years!
