A Test of Web Mentions on Blot
I really like the simplicity of Blot.im, and am tempted to switch over from Wordpress for my primary blog. The simplicity is wonderful, but the real advantage is that it is a truly indieweb experience—the content literally lives in my own folders, synced from whatever device I am working on.
There are actually just a couple things holding me back—support for things like Web Mentions and some of Colin Walker’s great plug ins!
Blot allows a balance of off-the-shelf simplicity, with the ability to create your own theme. Following a brief Twitter discussion with Blot’s creator and Kevin Marks, it seems that it might be possible to embed Web Mentions into the flow.

So this post is kind of being setup to give that a go!
We shall see.
Kind of like several now defunct services, including Scriptogr.am, with one important difference—it is not a free service.↩
