Watched EDU 522: Daily Update VI: Sending A Manual Webmention from YouTube
A short video on how to send a manual webmention to a WordPress site that's using the Webmention plugin.

Other manual methods for both WordPress-based and non-WordPress sites include:

For badges from static sites, you could simply use raw HTML on a page like Aaron Parecki outlines.1 The “sending” site doesn’t need to be able to send webmentions although the receiving site needs to be able to receive them.

A stupendous article, I just wish I’d had it all those many years ago. Thanks Aaron!
One useful thing for beginners that I don’t think got mentioned (pun intended!) in the article is that for receiving websites which don’t have a built in webmention form you can use a service like mention-tech.appspot.com/ which will allow you to manually put in the sending site and the receiving site and it will act as a bridge to send the webmention for you.

Well, I previously made mention-tech to send webmentions, which is handy for my static posts on kevinmarks.com, so I made it ping the archive for both source and target URLs in the webmention sent. Do try it yourself.#100DaysOfIndieWeb
