Here are a few of my favorite observations from Micro.blog this week:
On Monday, several separate music discussions popped up on Micro.blog. I struggle with new music discovery, so I was hoping this would happen sooner or later.
New Tools to Play With
One of the perks of having so many indie blog enthusiasts in one place is that useful tools just show up.
This week, I enjoyed:
- Setting up an RSS feed of my Instagram timeline using a web app by @snarfed that @jeremycherfas pointed me and some others to
- Playing around with a “not even alpha” version of Evergreen, @brentsimmons’ forthcoming RSS reader for the Mac
- Jump-starting my Christmas shopping with Gftbot, a fun web app that @jack shared
I’ve occasionally seen @sketchbookb post original t-shirt designs to Micro.blog, but I finally took the time to take a closer look what he’s doing. He’s designing a new shirt every week for a year and accompanying each new design with an explanatory blog post.
All of the shirts are for sale on Threadless, and if you diligently check out the links I shared above, you might even find a holiday coupon code for 20 percent off.
