Summary

My excuse at the time was:I decided to skip this step for now given that it's relatively easy to send a Webmention manually using curl and it's not as if I currently blog that frequently!Anyway a couple of recent discoveries led me to fix this omission…This lovely little service built by Remy Sharp, not to be confused with webmention.io which is used for receiving incoming Webmentions, makes it easy to send outgoing webmentions for all the links on a given page:This is a platform agnostic service that will check a given URL for links to other sites, discover if they support webmentions, then send a webmention to the target.Fortunately I still have an RSS feed for my blog and in this case the documentation suggests using IFTTT to automate doing this each time you publish an article.Somewhat serendipitously I recently came across Actionsflow which is a free Zapier/IFTTT alternative for developers to automate workflows based on GitHub Actions.I have to admit that I was initially quite confused by the Actionsflow documentation and I tried to add my Webmention-sending workflow to the repo for this website.
