Micropub test

I’m trying out the Micropub plugin for Wordpress as a way to add short updates to my site.

However, the thought does occur to me that if I’m solely using Micropub to post to my own blog it would be simpler to use the WordPress app that I already have installed on my phone to write a short update that serves the same purpose. As yet I don’t automatically publish my posts to other social media channels such as Facebook or Twitter, but this is easy to turn on. So the question is why bother with yet another way to send stuff to my blog when I already have several available?

I acknowledge that the IndieWeb folks are much smarter than me, but are they trying to fix a problem here that already has an existing solution? I guess that is not the case if you are not using something like WordPress.
