Hey #Fediverse,

I have a blog built with a static site generator. I've like to figure out a way to connect it to the Fediverse. Basically, I'd like people to be able to follow my blog through Mastodon/Friendica/Pleroma/etc. The blog itself would be an Actor.

Even though it's a static site, I think I can manage, through static JSON-LD files, hooks in the build process, and maybe a microservice for anything that *must* be dynamic, to get it to work (and all for free, hopefully).

I read the intro at https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/, and that helped a lot. But there's several pieces I don't understand yet.

Reading through the spec is a bit much. I'm looking for a good, really thorough tutorial on ActivityPub/ActivityStreams.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

If you don't want to do all the ActivityPub work yourself, you could check out https://github.com/aaronpk/Nautilus

do take a look at https://writefreely.org/. That might be exactly what you are looking for.
