Hello. I'm Jeremy and I have been online a long, long time. In all that time, though, I have never really understood the machinery that makes everything work. I don't think I ever will.

I'm very attracted to the ideas and philosophy of indieweb and POSSE, and started experimenting a long while back on Another Site. That worked well enough, but I didn't have the kind of access to break it that I really wanted, so I recently installed Known under my main site.

That site is built with Grav, with a sidebar that uses a plugin to pull in a stream from an instance of Known that runs under a subdomain.

Multi-site IndieWeb

At the moment I have project-specific sites running under WordPress (fornacalia for bread making, Eat This Podcast for podcasting, and the Agricultural Biodiversity Weblog, a kind of news-aggregator where a colleague now provides most of the content and I manage the site).

Eat This Podcast is now pretty much Indieweb enabled, receiving reactions from Twitter and via webmentions, thanks to the plugin authors and my child of the Independent Publisher theme. Fornacalia is partially IndieWeb enabled but Agricultural Biodiversity Weblog is not.

All this is historical and predates me learning about IndieWeb, and I am still not sure how best to integrate everything, or even whether that would be worthwhile, but I am slowly getting there.

My most rewarding social interactions take place on 10Centuries


  • The Big Itch: bring some order to my online life (to be expanded)
  • Need too find a way to display RSS feed from Known in Grav
Used a plugin and adjusted twig for the sidebar; still needs some formatting work.
  • Owning bookmarks and their content. I currently use both Instapaper and Pinboard. I can download everything from Inboard, but what then?
Looking at Wallabag for bookmarks, but may prefer to POSSE to Pinboard.

Working On

  • Ensure Known, Quill and Twitter work well together for me.
  • Put avatar somewhere that Loqi can find it
  • Adding webmentions plugin to Grav.
The plugin is there, and seems to work, so next up has to be enabling comments and the display of webmentions. If I don't have this working before then, it will probably be my main project for Nürnberg.
An absolute disaster, in the end, and it took a colossal amount of time and a lot of help to discover this.
  • Added webmention receiver from Pelle Wessman and got it working (I hope) in two short sessions.
Still need to work a bit more on styling.
