Today I Learned is the unofficial Micro.blog companion and guide.
Created by Simon Woods in 2018, this site is home to a growing and increasingly diverse collection of resources to help with using Micro.blog. A mixture of direct guidance and helpful information is provided on a daily basis, and made available via posts and pages.
You can follow different post feeds for different purposes, depending on your interest. Also, you can grab the master feed for everything:
- All posts from the site are available in one feed, via two formats.
Unsure about web feeds? Laura Kalbag has you covered:
RSS is a way to get updates from a website without visiting the site itself. It’s particularly useful for getting the latest news from a news site, or blog posts from a blog. The updates are listed in a “feed” which is syndicated (synced) from the website to your “feed reader” of choice.
