12 days of microblogging: daily log

We’ve seen a lot of people use their microblog as a daily log to track activities, from running or cycling routes, to meditation or posting photos of food. Some apps even make this easier, like indiebookclub.biz for sharing reading progress in a book.

In 2016 when I visited a different library in Austin every day, I found that the microblog format is helpful to stick to a routine. It becomes part of the day, knowing you need a quick post to your blog to record the visit or activity. Encouraging this kind of posting consistency is also why we have special pins you can unlock, such as the “Photo Challenge” pin after posting a new photo each day for a week.

For the last 11 days I’ve been writing about the way people are using Micro.blog: custom designs, microcasts, photo blogs, and more. You can find the rest of the posts in this 12 days of microblogging series over on the help site. Tomorrow we’ll wrap up with a final post.
