I gave micro.blog three weeks to settle into my life. I’m not impressed, I’m sorry to mention. It feels too much like a service in beta. I’ll keep posting on my blog, but delete the iOS apps for a few months. In the New Year I’ll reinstall them, and try again for a few weeks.

I pulled it of, sort of. I should’ve worked more on it, but I lost my energy. Ah well!
