Posts related to my website
I can hardly believe it, after two years I finally managed to work through all my tweets and sort them out properly. All tweets that remained, I have taken over to my website following PESOS.
There were really so many posts whose context I no longer understood myself. How should it expect it from others?
Of course, I have gained a few insights that I would like to share with you here. They are valid for Twitter, but also for all other social networks and my own website.
- No one cares if I’m tired, going to or coming from work, if I’m running late, what’s going on on the Autobahn, or how much I’m longing for the weekend to arrive
- I don’t have to keep a record of when I go to the gym or where I just ordered food.
- When commenting on moments or current events of the day, it’s a good idea to touch on the overall situation a bit, since it’s impossible to understand what it’s about in retrospect
- The same goes for situational comedy, insider or short comments on a hashtag for a quick like
- Likes are absolutely irrelevant
- Dialect or regionally related sayings / jokes can be avoided, no one understands them anyway
- Automated posts that I shared or posted something on another network are annoying!
- Weather?! If it’s not a natural disaster that I’m watching, then I’ll keep it to myself
- I no longer rely on 3rd party services where my content is stored (IndieWeb, Own Your Data!!)
- If I want to exchange ideas about trash TV, I should get an extra account…
Maybe there won’t be so many things left to post. But that’s also a good situation. Either content with substance or leave it out.
Reviewing my tweets and optionally syndicating them to my website is really hard. There are so many tweets, especially in the first years I wrote several times almost every day. When I transfer a post, I also do it in German and English. So I apply the following rules:
- Tweets about waking up or going to bed will be ignored
- Tweets about starting work, taking a lunch break, or getting off work will be ignored
- Stories from work that have lost their relevance will be ignored
- Tweets with broken links will be ignored
- Posts referencing any events that are no longer relatable will also be ignored
- Jokes that I don’t understand myself anymore will be ignored
- Tweets about new posts on fb, tumblr, instagram or any other network will be ignored
- Any tweets that I do not transfer to my website will be deleted on Twitter
After I’ve finished reclaiming Instagram, I also reclaimed my public Flickr posts and the one published YouTube video tonight.
I finished reclaiming my Instagram posts tonight. That was quite a lot of work to manually post each post 2 times (2 languages) here. But now I feel better 🙂
I found this old portal page of my website. This should have been around 2008. I still like it 🙂
As far as I remember, the coloring of the image changed depending on which of the three links to the subpages was hovered.
I joined the IndieWeb Webring (✒️🚤🐉). Scroll to my footer and discover the websites of some great people.
20th anniversary of my private website
Celebrating the good old times
Today exactly 20 years ago, I put the first version of my private website online. For some people, this may be just a side note, but for me, it means a lot.
-These days I create websites for a living, after all.

As I will not only have “normal articles” in the classical sense on my website but also a lot of interactions within the free internet, I have modified my feeds. This means that if you subscribe to my RSS or Atom feed, you won’t be bothered with all the interactions taken out of context, but only get the “big articles”. On notiz.blog, there is also a post on the topic that is worth reading.

In the spirit of the “Own your Data” principle by the Indieweb, I was able to recover my posts from Dailybooth, thanks to archive.org. The posts are filed under the tag “Dailybooth“. These pictures may not be of any value for you, but I’m glad they survived.
I have changed the theme of my website. “Themeberger Basic” is the new one, which I’ve developed as a side project during the last months. It’s not finished yet, but well, if I’m waiting for it, it never goes ahead. Soon there will be another child theme, which will bring this spartan representation into the form I want.
I just published my first shot at #dribbble. It displays the current progress for the landing page of my personal website I’m working on at the moment.

Just noticed this different avatars thing on @aaronpk‘s website in relation to the content. Such a subtle detail, smart and simple.
Well done, Aaron. I hope it’s okay for you that I’ll do something with this inspiration 😉
