Returning to Mastodon
A while back I decided to limit the amount of social media I was using, including Mastodon. I didn't like the way it made me feel and the way it distracted me from everything else in my life.
I have recently made the decision to get back on Mastodon in a small local community with people I know IRL. As per my personal philosophy on technology, I am going to be mindful of my usage, which will include:
- Not having it installed on my phone, so I can intentionally open up my laptop to go check my feed
- Being mindful of who I'm following to minimize unnecessary feed bloat
- Staying out of the global feed as it's a huge time suck
- Being on a small instance with people I know to get the most out of the local feed
Since leaving Mastodon, I used mastofeed and RSS to follow people who's work and thoughts I care to keep up on, however I often wanted to comment on the posts but had no way to, so I will be happy to be able to do that again.
I will mostly be posting updates to my website and projects I'm working on.
If you want to follow me I'm at @firstname.lastname@example.org
I am also on toki.social, to immerse myself in toki pona for learning purposes.
