• If you’re using a Micro.blog subdomain like you.micro.blog for your blog, you can register your own custom domain in Micro.blog and we’ll set everything up for you automatically. Click Account → Get a Domain Name.

  • Over the last couple of weeks we’ve updated most of our apps with bug fixes, including new versions of Micro.blog for iOS, Micro.blog for macOS, Sunlit, and Epilogue. Make sure to grab the latest! As the year winds down, we’re focused on keeping Micro.blog running smoothly.

  • We had some downtime this morning because of a networking issue at one of our hosting provider’s data centers. Very sorry for the trouble. We have temporarily disabled photo uploads until the issue is completely resolved.

  • Micro.blog 2.2.1 for iOS has been released in the App Store with bug fixes for iOS 15.1. Full release notes over at the Help Center.

  • We added a major new feature to Micro.blog Premium this week: email newsletters. Your blog readers can subscribe to get an email when you post a full-length blog post, or Micro.blog can collect posts into weekly or monthly emails.

  • Micro.blog was down because of a server error that has now been resolved. Very sorry! Unfortunately the status page did not report the issue. We’ll be updating that to detect this in the future.

  • There was some brief unexpected downtime today during a server deploy, getting ready for a new feature next week. Apologies! Everything’s back to normal now.

  • Not receiving push notifications? We think we’ve resolved the issue, although you may need to re-install the Micro.blog app for it to start working again. Give it a day to sort itself out while the app and Apple’s server get in sync.

  • Fixed a couple issues with following Micro.blog accounts from Mastodon. If you’re using a custom domain name with your microblog, Mastodon users can follow you with usernames like you@yourdomain.com. Set it up under the Account section of Micro.blog.

  • Micro.blog for macOS has been updated to version 2.1.2 with several improvements. @manton has a blog post with the details.

  • Some more Micro.blog fixes today: book search using Google Books, better sizing for Copy HTML button (and support for GIFs), always redirect to hosted custom domains, and Italic Type import.

  • If you missed last week’s changes, we rolled out much faster CSS editing and a new progress indicator on the web home page when publishing changes to your blog.

  • A database migration (new feature coming soon!) took longer than expected today, which might’ve caused some hiccups when publishing blog posts. Any problems should resolve automatically. Thanks for your patience.

  • Some of y’all noticed that profile photos weren’t always loading in the timeline this week. That has now been fixed, and we’ve added “avatars” to our status page to catch this kind of problem in the future.

  • There was a bug this morning affecting new @-mentions from showing up. Apologies if you received multiple notifications after it was fixed.

  • Micro.blog was down in the middle of the night (@manton time). We’re sorry for the downtime. Still investigating what went wrong but things are running smoothly right now.

  • As part of an upcoming server upgrade, if you are currently using Cloudflare with your custom domain name, please make sure that the proxying is disabled in Cloudflare’s settings. This helps us enable HTTPS for your domain name.

  • We hit a rate limit with HTTPS certificates today while rolling out a server upgrade. We’ve reverted and slowed down the migration to avoid further issues. Some hosted sites may have seen errors, but everything should be working again.

  • There have been some errors with Micro.blog-hosted blogs today because of a server failure. We’re keeping an eye on it and will be rolling out improvements.

  • We’re running a little behind schedule with Micro Camp, so we’ve shifted some of the sessions by 15 minutes. All the recorded sessions (not meetups) will also be available for later watching.

  • Micro Camp is today! Check out micro.camp for the speakers, schedule, and registration link. We’ll start at 10am Pacific Daylight Time.

  • The downtime for hosted blogs should be mostly resolved now, but we are still keeping an eye on things and there may be further fixes. If you notice any problems, don’t hesitate to reach out to help@micro.blog. Thank you!

  • We’ve announced the first set of speakers and live panels for Micro Camp 2021!

  • We added a new pens emoji to Discover! @jean has the details in her post.

  • Apologies for the downtime on help.micro.blog. It’s back online now. And you can always email help@micro.blog too.
