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.
I’m really new to this whole Indieweb thing, but I’m excited to gain more experience and probably add support for more Indieweb features. I want to use my blog more often instead of just posting on social media. Here I am in full control of the content.
