Post short thoughts or long essays, share photos, all on your own blog. makes it easy, and provides a friendly community where you can share and engage with others. is the brain child of Manton Reece. He contacted me in 2021 to help him work on it and bring my skills to it. Can’t wait to see what this relationship brings in the long term. I am forever grateful for the opportunity and hope to blog more about it here (as one of my own).

I like going through the whole discover curation timeline on Every other post is about "Defaults" 🤣

Again huge apology that's main service was offline for 2 hours 😬 I notified Manton around 15 mins into it. Due to the nature of it, we decided it's best handled by him... especially to avoid data loss (in worst case)... but first he had to get to the hotel 😋

All A-OK now.

Hosted sites were not affected, except some avatar images.

I'll be monitoring for a few hours more.

Site serving seems to be more stable now... will monitor for another few hours before bed time ❤️ Happy with the way things are looking though!

Sorry for the intermittent downtime for hosted blogs on Seems there is a lot of bot traffic (from what I can see). Sigh. For now I've tweaked the way traffic distributes between the servers (that host the static sites) and see if things are improving.

We're seeing intermittent issues with hosted blogs on right now. Still monitoring due to a high load on the main servers. How my reloads show the pages at the moment:

  • Blank
  • HTML only but no styles
  • Full content and styles, but no uploaded images
  • Fully working
  • Back to step one


I'm aware of issue on and am monitoring for at least an hour now. Will provide an update when I can.

Getting pretty close with the share intent/extension on Android for Everything is working. Going through some minor bugs I found. Perhaps this is ready sooner than later ✌️❤️

Spending some time to get the Android app share intent/extension working. It's passing data nicely and also shows up in the share sheet now, including for images via Google Photos (as an example).

Lots more work to do though.

We've been a little late on updating the Android app for That's on me. I know it's been 4 weeks since the last update (‼️)... We're gonna push out a new version this week with all the latest goodies. Also fixes an issue with not being able to activate push notifications on Android 13.

Another update on the image outage: This is now a confirmed issue with the upstream provider.

Just a quick update on the errors we are seeing on, it looks like the issue lies with Linode and their storage. Need to wait and see. Don't think this is our fault because I remember the SSL certs being renewed recently.

There are a few issues with displaying some images, like Avatars and Uploads, on If you use the CDN for your hosted site images then these are also affected. This is caused by invalid SSL certificates (and I don't have access to renew these 😭 ...yet 😅). Updates when we have them.

Excited to start something new-ish on, for the website ✌️ You'll have to wait and see what it might be. as a saved web app on Sonoma! Seriously awesome. I can see how it could be tweaked ever so slightly. Happy we took the time to make it look nice across different screen sizes.

One more app related fix we will have for the next iOS update: The post editor now scrolls nicely when the post is super long. Previously it wouldn't let you scroll 😋🤷‍♂️
