I'm taking my time

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

As you might have noticed, the frequency of new entries on this blog, or even the activity on my social media profiles, varies a lot. On some days I’m posting a lot. But then there are days with almost no activity at all.

Conversing through email

Published on in 🔗 Links
Updated on

In the recent past I got a similar experience like Brandon Nolet by conversing through email. Emails don’t have this presure to respond as soon as possible. You can take your time to think and then write a better response. Sometimes it can take days, weeks or even months. With email that’s not really a problem.

Journaling with rwtxt

Published on in 💭 Thoughts
Updated on

For about a month now, I do journaling again. Every evening before I go to bed, I try to write down everything that comes to my mind. I usually write what I have done that day, what my emotions where and other things that I thought about during the day. It has a very positive effect to do that. I wrote about that more detailed on my German blog (Google’s translation).

Updated on

A few days ago, I already added support for webmentions and microformats2 to this blog. Now I added a form at the end of every article, so you can submit your mentions more easily.

Awesome Personal Blogs

Updated on

You’ve probably come across Awesome lists already. This one is quite similar to Personalsit.es, which I linked to recently. It’s nice to have such a long list full of personal blogs to explore. Exploring other’s personal blogs always offers the possibility to learn and discover new things and get to know new people who share interesting stuff.

Mass Delete Tweets (free & no 3rd-party apps)

Published on in ✍️ Posts
Updated on

In this post I want to explain how you can mass-delete old tweets without the need to use a 3rd-party service that probably also want your money or scripts that require you to create an application on the Twitter developer portal. You will just make use of Firefox, Tweetdeck, some shell scripts and two command line tools.

On my new PC, I use Fedora Silverblue since the beginning. It’s different than your normal distro, but I actually learned to love it, especially for it’s atomic updates.

PGP, Webmentions and Microformats

Published on in 💭 Thoughts
Updated on

Today I did my first step to join the IndieWeb. I first had to generate a PGP key (that’s really new to me, I never did this before 😅) to be able to use my website for authentication. After I was able to successfully login to Webmention.io, the service, which can receive webmentions and pingbacks for you, I added support for webmentions to my blog, so I see when someone from the IndieWeb references my posts. After that I also added microformats2 support, so my blog should now be easier to parse.

Personalsit.es is a really nice idea featuring personal sites. Sites listed there have information about whether they have an RSS feed and what categories the site fits into.

Huel vs. Myprotein Whole Fuel Blend

Updated on

I think I never wrote about “meal replacements powders” on this blog, while I wrote a pretty extensive posts on my German blog once. So if you understand German, you might like to take a read, otherwise maybe try a translation.
