When Medium dropped our access to their API without warning a few months ago, we decided to permanently end our integration with them.

Today we're happy to launch a new integration with an open publishing platform that can't do the same, Ghost.

Read more on their blog: blog.ghost.org/admin-api/

(Thanks to @johnonolan and the Ghost team for reaching out and helping with the implementation!)

Lot of work went into making Ghost function as a fully headless CMS in the last year, very stoked to launch a lot of new developer tooling for the JAMstack architecture: blog.ghost.org/jamstack/

Flying back to the UK tomorrow for a 3 week Christmas break with friends. Fun, but after several months in Thailand... the cold is always a bit of a shock to the system.

Tumblr announced they’re shutting down all porn - and we rank #2 for “Tumblr Alternative”. Site traffic is up +400%.

Going to be an... interesting... week.

Actually updated our site to redirect most visitors to Mastodon - which I think is way more suited to the use-case of people moving away from Tumblr and looking for short-form, nice content networks.

New side project coming together nicely and I am

Preparing for full circumnavigation of the earth in the next 3 weeks. All for 1 conference and 2 meetings.

Something not mentioned in this post that I'm very interested in, is using ActivityPub to connect different Ghost instances together - just like Mastodon. If anyone is interested in chatting about this, I'd love some advice.
