First post to WordPress from the micro blog iOS app. Excited to see this moving forward.

An Apple News EIC

… This is great and all. I like the app, but only browse it every once in a while when my RSS/Podcast feeds are completed. I’d be happy to see the news delivery made better here.

The one thing I never see mentioned, though, is how sensitive the Apple News app is to touch compared to every other app on iOS. I can’t scroll without it triggering the text selection effect. That happens nowhere else for me.

A well-priced, quality travel backpack

I always read bag reviews that Brooks writes. They are fantastic, but I’m always left wanting a bag that ends up in the $200-300 range. I get paying for quality, but I don’t travel enough for that type of investment.

Looks like this one is for me.

The thing about the Faroe is the price. It’s a well above average bag, at a rock bottom price. For the price, features, quality, style, and capacity — I cannot think of a better bag to recommend. In fact, if you are new to traveling with a backpack only, I think this is the bag you start with.

Now this one is written through the json feed. Probably an unlimited number of tests before I get all of this right. Yay.

Instituted json feed for both posts and snippets but unsure of how micro.blog will handle the items.

Slowly attempting to fully set up and give micro.blog a go on my own WordPress.
