“Is it just me or does nobody have their own website anymore? OK, some people do. But a lot of these sites are outdated, or just a list of links to profiles on big tech platforms. Despite being people who build websites, who love to share on the web, we don’t share much on our own sites.”

I’m contemplating RSS and reading articles. Since my introduction to the fediverse I actually treated my timeline like a feed reader and mostly read articles from hackernews and stuff that people shared. I’ve also implemented a rough microsub server in akedia. Which mostly works, but man, parsing feeds is hard

So yesterday I installed miniflux which is a no-frills RSS reader and I love it. The simplicity of RSS is really intriguing to me. Most blogs I read (still) have RSS support even if they don’t advertise it. (For example Hugo has /index.xml in the default configuration)

So I will run with miniflux for now and see how it goes.

PS: Readably is a really nice android reader with support for a lot of selfhosted readers/aggregators through the fever api.
