Day 1: fixing reposts
I’ve been doing my own 100 days of IndieWeb for a while now, but I never blogged about the outcomes of each day. There also wasn’t much focus. I did multiple things at once and was never really satisfied. So my 100 days of IndieWeb is not about doing more, it’s about doing less, but more consistent.
