Hi, Doug here. I was vaguely aware of IndieWeb because of the 2016 XOXO IndieWeb slack channel meetup. Fast forward to the kickstarter, which tickled the idea that I had been Yak shaving rather than blogging! I dusted off my lifetime ASmallOrange account, installed WordPress, and headed to IndieWeb Summit 2017 in Portland. I learned a lot, named [indiewebring|🕸💍], kept running into limitations of shared hosting, and channeled my inner 🐲.
