The short of it: Micro.blog is boring (by design).
The long of it: Micro.blog is just not for me. It just seems strangely sterile. Not that I don't like curation and whatnot, but the fact that the main discovery page is curated means you only really get a taste of the most milquetoast folks posting about programmer stuff with some nice photos wedged in. The tags (tagmojis) are not much better in interesting content, but at least it's a cool idea. #indieweb
