I have my Mastodon account here: https://
Web developer and Studio Lead at Deloitte Digital in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Seems like the Mastodon POSSE from my Known site is borked. Argh. Something to fix again this week.
Since there is no algorithm on Mastodon to show you potentially interesting toots and posts from people on the other side of the Globe, it is the duty of early risers to go through their feeds first thing in the morning, and boost.
Realizing I am getting more and more news and updates through #Mastodon than ever before. It's working!
Changed the "post deletion" on my Mastodon profile to a month. No need to keep a copy of my ramblings on this Mastodon server for longer than that since I keep the original post on my own site anyway.
To do: fix Known CMS to actually post the full content on longer status updates to Mastodon, so I don't look like I am spamming links back to my own website so much.
One of the aspects I love about the #Mastodon servers or instances is that every server's content and all the author's public posts can be visited, read and seen online in any web browser without "register to see more nags" - it's open Web as it should be!
Noticing that the "local" feed of the #Mastodon instance I am on is getting as random as the federated one, telling me that it might be time to find a smaller community which I can relate to more. Wondering if Mastodon has plans for a circles-like grouping of people to follow to create more concentrated feeds?
At the moment the Mastodon instance at indieweb.social is struggling to keep up with the network surge. I still have my own site here however where I am writing this post on. Chugging along the #Indieweb stream - Don't forget that using your own site for posting to Mastodon and the Fediverse is totally fine and actually promoted. It's called #POSSE
Sites like Instagram and Reddit, which are hiding content after teasing access to the content a bit, are really only doing it for the monetization of your content and your profile data. Post on Mastodon or on your own website and you decide yourself who gets to see your contributions.
Seems like many famous web developers are ditching Twitter for Mastodon! check out Zach's boosts: https://
