So I’m using abc as a hostname because of course the TLD is .xyz so of course, but also I want to make this the “sidecar” to the main show that goes on over at With that in mind, should I be making categories for “kinds” that you see in some other blogs?

  • namely the Reads, Watches and Listens activities for stuff I’m doing… I think I need to rework how that was done over there and make it more succinct.

  • Then there’s the notes sections. Which acts like a catch-all for random short posts with no title… Conversations into the either.

  • Also the Like, Bookmarks, and Replies sections that’s especially part of the efforts of POSSEing up all the comments and content from around the internet back here.

Also bear in mind the communications features are in both places for first-party integration into the Fediverse; the main one at and running ActivityPub for Wordpress and this one here on So I’ve got double vision.

Should I bottle all that up and bring it over here while leaving the “main blog” to host articles, long form content and the like? (Certainly, I need to give it a better coat of paint in the form of themeing; I never got around to actually doing that part as I want to work on the plumbing first…

…Dammit, I don’t even have my categories set for where this post is going to wind up! 🤦🏾‍♂️
