Kickstarter update with ePub

Today I sent the following update to Kickstarter backers about the ePub version of Indie Microblogging. Note that the link to download the book is disabled below. This is for Kickstarter backers first, then we’ll sort out how to get it to everyone else.

Today I’m making a near-final draft of my book Indie Microblogging available to Kickstarter backers in ePub format. You can load this up on a Kindle, Apple’s Books app, or your favorite e-book reader. The latest version is also available on the web at

Over the last year, I’ve updated the book for recent events that affect blogging and social networks, such as Elon Musk acquiring Twitter, Meta’s Threads launch, and the latest with Bluesky. There’s also a new interview with Om Malik. I’m still planning to go through the book one more time and refine what is there before we officially call this done.

If you aren’t ready to jump into the book, I suggest skimming the version on the web to get a feel for the content, but wait to download the ePub until later, to make sure you have the latest draft.

The ePub file is [available for download here].

What about the PDF and print edition of the book? I’ll be sending another update to Kickstarter backers with more information about that. It has been years since the original Kickstarter campaign, so I expect many of you have moved, and I want to make sure that we have everyone’s correct shipping address.

Thanks as always for your patience and support! And especially to everyone who is using The platform has come a long way, and there’s more to come in 2024.
