As I continue to move my focus away from the centralized web, I’ve been exploring Micro.blog a bit. I’m still trying to really wrap my head around it, but it offers much of the social features you’d want to bridge independent weblogs together. And it’s delightful compared to Twitter.
A good client was a necessity, though. After testing just about everything available, I believe Gluon is the best. It’s still lacking in a few areas — line length is rough on the iPad and the app doesn’t appear to support publishing to a self-hosted site. But it excels in all the right ways.
