iA Writer has added micro.blog support and I’m pretty thrilled about that. Nice to have a polished writing tool that publishes straight to my blog, can interact with version control, and has a good variety of export options. There are a few “Markdown word processors” out there, including Ulysses, but iA Writer is hitting some sort of sweet spot for me.
The workflow is kind of interesting, too: You write the post in iA Writer, “publish” from the iOS share sheet, and get taken to the micro.blog site where the content sits as a draft you can edit further or publish.
Some kind of round-trip editing would be nice, but as a way to use a comfortable tool to write a post and shoot it off, this is fine: There are other ways to edit posts once they’re up, and I don’t usually aim to do much more than fix typos or add brief updates once I’ve posted something.
Bought a bag of Stumptown Hairbender. It’s an incredibly nostalgic flavor: I was so happy when I started at Puppet and found an AeroPress in the kitchen there. I’d always favored darker roasts but Hairbender was what there was and I loved it. I’ve been on a tea kick, but this has been a nice flashback cup.
Holy cow the urge to get out on a board hit hard today, so I just watched my slide video and stared at the quiver trying to decide which one I’m going out on first when the coast is clear. Pretty sure it’ll be the Subsonic or the Pantheon. The Comet calls but baby steps.
