Start subscribing via a RSS Feed Reader. For ideas, see who I sub to on my profile (currently a mockup) on OURSS.SOCIAL
First-choice: NetNewsWire native apps
Hon mention: InoReader online
Not ready to use a feed reader? Subscribe via email where you can, but be sure to use aliases (w/ SimpleLogin, AnonAddy etc) unless you know & trust the person
Some content platforms are more closed than others. These are ones I got started on which ultimately let me embed them on my own website today.
Video: Vimeo (25% off)
Not ready to churn out regular content, but want a web-presence you own. Buy a domain and plop down an intro there (think of it as a virtual business card / Linktree)
First-choice: Carrd (use my Moderner templates for just 3 bucks)
Hon mention: Squarespace (if you’ve got money and/or might wanna ultimately bolt-on a blog there)
don’t wait for OURSS. You’ll get most out of it if you already have an active blog at a domain you own.
First-choice: (hosted) Micro.blog
Hon mention: Ghost and Substack (w/ custom-domain)
Thanks for enjoying the musical manifesto to OURSS.SOCIAL. I can’t wait to get some useful tools up there to make RSS more social in the new year.
