@raretrack @kimberlyhirsh What?! We LOVE @withknown! You'll have to pull it from my cold, dead hands... http://indieweb.org/multi-site_indieweb

 

@mattscomments No, not a plugin (yet?). I exported them via the Amazon Kindle Desktop app and added some CSS to improve the mark up a tad. Doesn't take too long though. I greatly prefer to own this type of content on my own site first and then syndicate it to places like GoodReads after the fact.

I've written some details here: http://boffosocko.com/2016/10/24/notes-highlights-and-marginalia/
Searching my site for "marginalia" will uncover other resources: http://boffosocko.com/?s=marginalia

I also recently helped guide Jeremy Cherfas though some of the process and he's well documented a similar (non-WordPress) workflow here: https://www.jeremycherfas.net/blog/setting-my-marginalia-free

Given your Twitter background at @mattmaldre:
There are some in the indieweb movement working on notes, highlights, marginalia, fragmentions, etc. You can search/find wiki pages for those topics here: https://indieweb.org. In particular, Kartik Prabhu has a fantastic set up which he describes (and you can see implemented along with sample code) at: https://kartikprabhu.com/articles/marginalia

I presume you'll already know about https://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/6156? As well as work by groups like http://hypothes.is.

 
 

@EddieHinkle Clicking through will show that the text in the Twitter card is a quote of the original, in some part a reminder to me about what it was I had listened to. (It also serves as an advertisement for the thing itself--I like to promote good podcasts.) Most often these posts are just an emoji indicating the post type with the title and source of the thing I listened to. Occasionally I'll add some bit of a reply or commentary and bury the true post type into the Twitter Card along with a quote from the original. eg: https://twitter.com/ChrisAldrich/status/825206436305137664

Once in a rarer blue moon I'll throw a snippet of commentary into the Twitter card, but not often. See also https://indieweb.org/bookmark##How+to+POSSE for some thoughts on this. It's ever evolving. I'd love to hear your thoughts on improvement or alternate methods. I particularly like dumping additional data into the twitter cards when I can, though I'm aware that not all Twitter clients make use of them.

If you want to listen to what I'm listening to, you can subscribe to it via http://boffosocko.com/kind/listen/feed/. This feed format also works for other post types like "read", "like", "favorite", "photos", "checkins", "watches", etc.
