I’ve always liked how Bluesky uses a domain name for your handle. Starting today, Micro.blog has built-in support for verifying these! If you’ve signed into Bluesky with Micro.blog, it will automatically return your AT Protocol “DID” from the .well-known URL for your blog. No DNS fiddling.
In more detail, it looks something like this:
- Your blog is (for example)
myblog.comhosted on Micro.blog.
- Your handle on Bluesky is
@myuser.bsky.socialbut you want it to be just
- Sign into Bluesky in Micro.blog under Account → Edit Sources & Cross-posting.
- Go back to Bluesky and change your handle to
@myblog.com. You’ll want to choose the “No DNS Panel” option.
That’s it! Bluesky will check with Micro.blog to verify that it’s your blog. After everything is set up, you may need to go back to your cross-posting settings and update to use your new Bluesky handle too, if you want Micro.blog to send blog posts over there automatically.
