Tweaked the wording on every single email that Sublime Ads sends. Took some time. Also tweaked the mailer template a little. Took out those horrid tables.

Doing gradual improvements and feature implementation the next few weeks.

1 year since launch anniversary coming up!

In preparation of a few changes, I made a few tweaks to Sublime Ads.

It was mainly updates to some of the packages (and all that good stuff). I’ve taken the opportunity to upgrade Tailwind also (was using version 1… now we are using version 2 — and yes, I know, version 3 is the hotness). Colours look a little different so let me know if anything seems off.

Not done yet though! This was just a minor little thing before I actually do the bigger work.

I’ll tweak the styles as I go too.

Some minor tweaks to the Micro.blog interface. Now showing profile images on a profile. Looks nice and is closer to what we have for the official apps also. Happy with this small tweak.

Gluon version 2022.1 has been released for iOS. Release notes are here.

Gluon version 2022.1 has been submitted for review 🤞❤️

Trust me when I say that, even if all seems very quiet, that there is always Micro.blog development happening (mainly by @manton 😋). Not a week goes by without little tweaks, fixes and new stuff. Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it ain’t happening ✌️❤️

One of the nice things about developing for Micro.blog is that you find lots of new people to follow 😋

Continuing work with the Micro.blog Android app this week. Today I hooked up Tagmoji to the Discover screen. Tomorrow I will work on navigating to those sections.

News on the Gluon front… I won’t be releasing any updates until the new year now. It’s something I wanted to do, but decided against it for now. Just want to take it slow.

It’s Monday ✉️❤️
