Recently, I was thinking about adding a new feature to microblog.pub: the possibility to pull/subscribe to a RSS/JSON feed and create Article activities when a new post is published.

On the "public" website, it would show up as a link to the original post (like Mastodon is doing), but the AP object would contain the full post.

This way, your blog (#IndieWeb powered of course) would be able to fetch the replies/likes/shares collection of the Article and display it.

Any thoughts?

So, you are invisaging this feature being used by the owner of the blog and the microblog.

I think there is also a bot potential, to aggregate info from third party sources. Perhaps, that isn't the intention.

@fitheach yes of course it's meant for the blog owner.

Thanks for the feedback.

Also, I think it is a good idea. Closes the loop between platforms.
