A while back I decided to reduce my social footprint and limit my presence to a few websites. This allows me to focus and have more meaningful interaction with people. As result, I stopped using Twitter and Instagram, limiting myself to Micro.blog 1.

Micro.blog offers several features, including a timeline which anyone can use for free (limited to read and reply other people’s posts) and a hosted blog with unrestricted use of the timeline (for paid subscribers). I use the paid version, hosting my blog there.

Obsidian is the source of truth for most of my writings and I though it would be interesting to post to Micro.blog directly from it. In the past I explored several applications such as Ulysses, iA Writer, and many others which allow publishing to Micro.blog, but they don’t work for me, they don’t reflect the way I think and take notes. Obsidian does.

My answer to this need is Micro.publish, an Obsidian plugin I wrote in TypeScript 2 to post to Micro.blog directly from Obsidian.

The plugin is available in the Community Plugins area inside Obsidian or directly from Obsidian’s website.

The list of past and planned release can be found in the Micro.publish Changelog.

  1. I cross-publish my Micro.blog posts to Mastodon↩︎

  2. This is the first time I write in TypeScript. ↩︎
