Soon I’ll be on a cycling trip, and I previously enjoyed sharing some of my thoughts and experiences as I travelled, so I thought I’d do it again.
Back in 2011/2012 I blogged occasionally as I cycled around the UK (see https://nicksellen.co.uk/ontheroad/), and last year I posted a few videos over at https://social.coop/@nicksellen (but they’re kind of lost among the other content now).
I’m using a self-hosted WordPress site, as the mobile app makes it easy to post new content. Afterwards, I might move the content over to my main website (https://nicksellen.co.uk) so I don’t need to keep a WordPress site running.
For my social media usage, I interact with the fediverse (via mastodon over at https://social.coop/@nicksellen), and I wanted people to be able to follow me there too, so I’ve installed the WordPress ActivityPub plugin, this means you can follow me from there using one of these two formats (you can paste them into a mastodon search box):
Replies over there will show up in the comments over here (after approval), and you can also just post comments directly on the site.
I’m not sure exactly what kind of content I’ll be posting, maybe not a lot though as I’ll be enjoying getting away from the computer/phone. Happy for ideas in the comments!
