• Fixed slow posting for some users. Should be very fast again!

  • We had another issue with hosted blogs, but it should be resolved now. If you continue to see any problems with your blog loading, please email support. Thanks!

  • Apologies for the downtime, another server crashed bringing down portions of the core Micro.blog platform. Everything should be back to normal.

  • Hosted blogs experienced errors tonight as we had multiple server failures. Everything should be running smoothly again. Thanks for your patience and support!

  • Micro.blog for iOS has been updated to 3.2.8, improving the photo options screen and how auto-generated text is used. Full release notes history is on the help page.

  • Last week we added a new audio narration feature for blog posts, available to all Micro.blog subscribers. The documentation for how it works is on this web page.

  • Micro.blog for iOS has been updated today with these changes:

    • Added uploads search.
    • Added Get Info context menu to uploads to show URL or copy auto-generated text on photos.
    • Added Markdown highlighting when editing standalone pages.
    • Fixed truncation for emoji in bio on profile screen.
    • Fixed clearing search and tweaked search field spacing.

    Special thanks to @jade for contributing the emoji fix!

  • Added a progress spinner when posting on the web to help feedback with slow posting. Also fixed an issue with discovering JSON Feeds when following blogs.

  • Fixed not being able to use Mastodon to sign in for new reply text box unless already signed in to Micro.blog. Using Mastodon or Bluesky should not require also having a Micro.blog account.

  • We launched two new related features around replies: you can now curate other people’s replies to hide them from showing up on your own blog, and there’s a reply text box so that other people can reply on your blog without a Micro.blog account. Enable it on the Design page.

  • Reminder that Micro Camp is happening this Friday! It’s our online event for the community, this year featuring guest Christina Warren and the State of Micro.blog session with Q&A. Follow @camp for updates.

  • Fixed sending emails for direct messages from the fediverse. We had disabled this temporarily when there was a series of spam attacks from Mastodon and forgot to re-enable it.

  • Added support for using post categories in email newsletter templates.

  • Added support in the new post screen on the web for showing the auto-generated photo description if it’s available. Requires the AI setting toggled on and Micro.blog Premium. See this YouTube video for details.

  • Fixed an issue with stalled photos being processed with AI for search and accessibility text.

  • We are investigating a potential security issue. If you ever notice anything strange in your account — especially posts appearing on your blog that you didn’t write! — please let us know via email to help@micro.blog. Thank you.

  • Fixed adding the first inline link in blog posts to LinkedIn for cross-posting, better matching support for Mastodon and other services.

  • Fixed replying to some Bluesky user domain names when you get a reply from a Bluesky user.

  • Added a help page with a link to Manton’s video about photos search, plus related details, limitations, and API support.

  • Fixed using <!–more–> in email newsletters to split a post into intro and full content.

  • Hosted blogs were down briefly tonight. Everything should be running smoothly now and we’re monitoring the servers that had an issue.

  • Added a new setting for LinkedIn cross-posting. On the “Edit Sources & Cross-posting” page, you can now switch from posting to your LInkedIn connections only or to anyone.

  • Fixed some intermittent errors on the Uploads page.

  • Fixed an issue with multiple source feeds where cross-posting might not be enabled.
    Fixed broken photo thumbnail right after uploading a new photo.

  • There was some downtime again on the core web platform. It has been resolved. Thanks for your patience.
