Kickstarter update with book release date

Today I sent the following update to Kickstarter backers.

Hi everyone! I’ve set a release date for the book Indie Microblogging: January 2nd, 2020. I’ll send an email that day to all Kickstarter backers with a link to read the book on the web.

You can preview the draft table of contents here:

There’s a pre-order link on that page. You don’t need to pre-order the book because you will already have access as a Kickstarter backer, but please share the link on your blog, to followers on social networks, and with friends who might need a reason to dust off their blog or even start writing on the web for the first time.

Thanks for your support and patience as I’ve spent the last couple of years focused on building and improving There is still a lot of work to do, but I’m excited to spend the next month wrapping up the book reward for Kickstarter backers.

And if you haven’t checked out lately, the community keeps growing and the platform has evolved to be great for full-featured blogs, not just microblogs. Photos, Hugo themes, categories, pages, podcast hosting, publishing from apps across iOS, macOS, Android, the web, and much more.

P.S. Indie Microblogging is a book about the web, so I want it to be on the web first. After some time to incorporate fixes and improvements to the text, I’ll follow up with a print version for backers at the higher reward tiers.
