Micro.blog is now available to anyone. There’s a limit of 100 new sign-ups each day, so that we can better respond to feedback as the community grows.
I’ve been eagerly awaiting this news for some time. I’ve now got a Hugo blog set up and I’ve connected its RSS to my micro.blog account.1 Here’s my micro.blog profile. Seriously, you should get a micro.blog account now if you don’t already have one. It’ll be fascinating to see where this goes. I’m wishing Manton and the project the best.
- I’m hosting my microblog on GitHub Pages, using Codeship to build the Hugo site and then push it to the
gh-pagesbranch. I’m using Cloudflare to get HTTPS on the domain (since GitHub Pages doesn’t (yet) support custom SSL domains). The total cost of this setup is $7/mo for a premium GitHub account, and I wouldn’t even have to pay that if I were ok with the repository being public. ↩︎
