• Well, that was easy. Tiny Theme now includes a matching newsletter template. This requires a Micro.blog Premium subscription. It’s very basic due to the complex nature of styling email, but it matches the out-of-box look of Tiny. If you’ve customized Tiny, you may also want to customize the included newsletter template to match. And it does work with the new “Intro” feature. I’m considering this a beta feature for now; please report any issues back to me.

    In addition, I’ve also added special CSS classes that will allow you to individually style each link in your navigation bar. Want one nav link to have a different color background? Easy! So many cool possibilities. The update is available on your Plug-Ins page now.

  • Looks like newsletters are getting an upgrade on Micro.blog thanks to @manton. For those who use Tiny Theme, a matching newsletter template/styling will be added very soon.

  • I grabbed a new domain (simple redirect) for Tiny Theme for Micro.blog. I’ve been happy with what I’ve seen others do with the theme, so I thought why not? I like the domain too: tinyformicro.blog

  • Another day with family, baseball, trampolines, and the outdoors.

  • A little bit of front yard catch for the girls.

  • A new tree for the yard. Planting in crocs. Being the heavier of the two of us, I ended up doing the digging. To her disappointment.

  • The building next to my office has been testing their fire alarm for two days. So that’s been pleasant.

  • If you have a Drafts Action, a good Shortcut you use, or any other Micro.blog specific automation/script, let me know. Interested to see what’s out there.

  • Does anyone use a self-hosted (or at least custom domain-ed) image sharing service? Something similar to Imgur, perhaps?

  • What apps are you using for each service? Mine are:

    • Micro.blog: Official App
    • Bluesky: Official App & Ivory
    • Mastodon: Ivory
    • Reddit: Official App
  • She could spend her entire lifetime in a backyard garden. It is, without a doubt, something that “sparks joy.” I’m thinking it’s time to add some more raised beds like she’s been asking.

  • A Blue Bell and Dr. Pepper collab? Be still, my Texan heart.

  • I’m going to push out an update to the Tiny Theme for Micro.blog today that adds a few features. First, all posts (in the feed and on individual posts) include a CSS class that matches the category(ies) of that post. This will allow you to style individual posts differently based on the category. For example, you could format Microposts differently than Links which could different than Longform content or Images. I also added support for Microformats and a new paragraph class (.note) that allows for simple callouts in posts.

  • Happy Mother’s Day to these two.

  • Any watch lovers out there? I’m selling a Seiko 5 GMT SSK003 for $325 shipped US. It does have a scratch on the crystal (can live with it, buff it, or replace it). Box, papers, links, etc included.

  • A friend of mine has been sharing photos from their trip to Isla Mujeres which reminded me of when we went 9 years ago. I think it’s time we go back!

  • I’ve updated Tiny Theme for Micro.blog with a few quick changes & bug fixes. Improved blockquotes, fixed horizontal scroll bug, added accessibility improvements, improved link styling, added pagination to category pages, & fixed alt text for logo. You can upgrade to 1.0.5 on the plugins page.

  • I have a few things to finish, but my custom Micro.blog theme is nearly complete (see my blog). It has no added scripts, is fully responsive, the only media query is for dark mode, & it doesn’t load special fonts. Hopefully I can finish soon. I plan to make it available if there’s interest.

  • I’m getting close to wrapping up a simple theme design for Micro.blog (as seen on my blog). I need to tie off a few loose ends and work through (learn) what all needs to be done to make it easy-to-install for others.

  • First game of the year!

  • Watching my son’s tee ball game during some absolutely perfect weather today.

  • Spent a good portion of the day reprogramming non-smart door locks at our office. So that was fun.

  • For the third time, I’m returning to Micro.blog. I know, I know, indecisive, always chasing, can’t make up my mind. But perhaps it’s telling that I keep coming back to the same place? And of course, had to do a new theme.

  • I need a teleprompter app for iOS that supports:

    • Custom font face, size, & color
    • Custom bg color
    • Custom scroll speed
    • Presentation Remote Support
    • Supports AirPlay

    That’s it! Every one I’ve tried attempts to be so much more and clutters the interface way too much.

  • Alright, had to rethink things again. Here is where I’ve landed for my current home and Lock Screen setup.
