I'm actually looking forward to as an easy-to-use digital garden.

We already have links to articles and can un-display the creation time. But there are still some features missing. For example, I would like to set the order of the posts, show the creation time and modification time in the posts, and show a collection of my own links at the end of the post.

This could even be a fourth option for blogs, novels, and notebooks. It would be like a dream come true if it ever appeared.

The reference example is

Instead of richly growing over the years, your blog becomes more difficult to manage, and ultimately less useful.

This has personally been the direct opposite of my experience on, and I think it's largely to do with the fact that I am constrained to tagging.


If more management options helps anyone else feel more cohesively published, I am down to explore.

I suppose you could extrapolate on that and say... I think adapting to the Musing Studio suite was the best CMS thing that ever happened to me and it's helped tremendously... I feel I know it so well that it's actually hard to think of requests/suggestions lol.

But I think that function for me (and perhaps others who've been drawn here for similar reasons) has been served, past tense. The perspective/skills have been acquired and you should absolutely feel enabled to get complicated.

The only request I've come up with is.. perhaps an absorption of the <!--more--> and <!--comment--> functions into the UI as settings.

For anyone using our hosted tools, this will start with getting full support for replies directly from the fediverse.

Exciting news, Matt! I like the idea of having a Drafts section/service, and the possibility to schedule posts as well. I also think it would be great to have better post management (I've been dealing with that with tags, but even then, I have to go through a bunch of posts to find the one I'm looking for).
Keep up the good work! 😀

Congratulations, this sounds wonderful. Your services are fabulous. Hope the hiatus treated you well.

Hoping to see some movement on soon. And integrated seems like a better log-term idea for the products, but I completely get that evolving them independently can be a better way to get started.

Interesting thoughts, and I’m excited for the future. Especially the possibilities of and the fediverse is interesting. The dream would be that people’s comments on the blog would show up as replies to the federated feed and vice versa.
