I’ve been assisting John Philpin in optimizing the site and noticed several author profiles with missing avatars. I believe I’ve identified the reason and a workaround but before implementing a solution, I have two questions for each of you. My questions are at the end of this post.

If you want to reply by comment, a simple ‘yes’ or no to each question is I need. If you prefer you may contact me privately.


  1. Do you have a Gravatar profile? (just say ‘no’ if not sure)
  2. If your avatar is one of the missing ones, do you want your own custom avatar to appear on your Just Good Music profile?


We are live and fully operational.

First – A warm welcome to two more new contributors:

Jacob Gorban

Best Of Times

Total Contributor Count Is Now 5 Micro Bloggers and more to come we hope.

As they arrive, and contributing for the first time, we are updating the contributors page.

We have done a little bit of CSS tweaking – but that can – and will – always be improved.

Web Mentions are working – courtesy of Joe Jenett

I have re-enabled my old associated twitter account. So, as we post here, it of course arrives on Micro.Blog – but it is now also syndicated to Just Good Music on Twitter I probably need to revisit who is being followed – and when happy will expose the feed on the site swell.

Please let me know if there is anything more you would specifically like to see.

One outstanding thing that I am wrestling to the ground.

I do want to work out how to bring the 🎵 discover feed onto this site.

According to this

https://micro.blog/posts/discover/music – should allow us to pull posts flagged 🎵 – I just need a suitable JSON feed plugin. Any recommendations?


If anybody feels inspired and want so to improve on the logo image – I am ready!

A new page on Just Good Music provides an index to our contributors.

From the page you can bounce out to the individual’s account on Micro Blog and/or a list of all their posts on the blog.

The original point of this site and account was so that musically oriented members of micro.blog could have a place to post and write about all things music and in turn we had a single place that over time becomes a repository.

If you want to be a contributor – let me know and I will add you to the site.

If this all works out, I will commit more resources to it.

If there are graphic design oriented people out there – perghaps they could do a logo for the site/account.

If there are more technically minded – help in getting things like web mentions running on the site would be very welcome.

I am also thinking if there is a way we can tie the music emoji tag that runs through the micro blog site to route here aswell – regardless of the post owner being a contributor. Thoughts?
