Or so I thought. Running the app was helping me a lot it write, but now it won’t publish, or upload drafts and I’m unsure if why.
I will keep investigating it to figure out what I can do, as I miss having this easy way of publishing. I’ve set up an alternative, which will hopefully help a little, but it’s not the same. Maybe I’m just whiney.
Hi, I am still around and I still want to write, I’ve just been exhausted, am still exhausted. I’ll give you all a better update eventually.
Take care of yourselves and each other in the meanwhile.
Edit: apparently it’s working now, and there’s only one blog post, which I’ve deleted that fails to upload, makes sense
After having spent a good 1.5 years on Mastodon, I feel like I just get bombarded with crap on Facebook that I don’t want to see / not comfortable with seeing.
Why? It’s not because my friends are bad people, it’s because Facebook doesn’t offer a way for my friends to add content warnings which protect the images.
On Mastodon, while it has it’s flaws, you can choose to put up a warning for what your content contains.
You can use this for Trigger Warnings, Sensitive Subjects, Food, and even SPOILERS for movies/series. Or just put your nerdy discussions behind it, and let people opt in to see it.
People will only see it if they click through, and it’s such a different experience. Even though I mostly almost always click through I find that when I’m prepared it’s a lot easier to deal with.
It allows the people posting to be cognizant about what they put out
there, and how it presents to other people. It makes a lot of the people
on the platform a lot more compassionate, than I’ll ever see here on
