Tinker Tailor Blogger Why

CJ Eller quotes Sajesh on the matter of blog comments: “I feel like the old style of blog comments just don’t quite cut it for the modern web stack and ways we interact.” The reality is I agree, but one of the reasons I’ve taken a vacation from my actual, vanity-domained blog is because, hosted as it was on an indieweb-facing service I found that my current need for simplicity kept bumping up against the fact that the sought-after interoperability of the indieweb is far, still, from being a simple matter. I guess that I needed to retreat to a space which arguably actually is underdeveloped even in traditional terms let alone the terms of indieweb strivings. I needed somewhere away from the noise, and away from the inherent invitation to tinker.
