Microblog.pub is a lightweight self-hosted single user Fediverse server which can be followed from Mastodon etc.

You can find out more info at:

docs.microblog.pub

The official account disappeared for a while but it's now back at:

@dev

As the account notes, it's just been rewritten with version 2.0 of the software, so you may need to unfollow and then refollow.

(Having said that, I haven't been able to actually follow the account, it seems to work at first but then gives a "follow request" message? Have you managed to get this to work?)

Follow

p.s. There's a bug which is causing the @dev account link to appear in a new tab instead of as a profile page. This can complicate the following process.

You can work around this by pasting @ dev @ microblog.pub (but without the spaces) into the search box on Mastodon etc and then opening the profile in the search results, where you can click follow.

p.p.s. Little update, the link bug has been fixed! 🥳 You can now follow @dev by just clicking on it and selecting the follow button.

@feditips @dev Agreed FediTips - Anyway instead of opening non-native Mastodon profiles, I paste their name and follow that way for people... ****the modern profiles MISSKEY style stuff DOESN'T WORK on some old browsers or switch off components (people are losing out on fans / view sometimes from near-blank JAVASCRIPT PAGES (just html header shows and nothing else )****

New / complicated code and setups risk more 404 not found type effects / content not loading
