I’ve recently added webmention capability in my CMS. Webmention is one of the building blocks of the Indieweb movement. The idea is that if my article links to another person’s article then my website will notify theirs and if their site also supports webmention then they can show beside their article that I’ve linked to it.

Likewise, other sites can notify mine if they’ve linked to mine. In this way, I eventually hope to have likes, comments etc from sites such as Facebook and Twitter fed back to here so that I can display them beside the source article.

I’m now going to test webmentions by linking to this article on the topic by Aaron Parecki. Let’s see if something shows up on his site.
