I am attending the decentralized web conference for the next two days so probably a good idea to like, kick my Mastodon server back into gear. Hi everyone

You know what would be nice? If more of my friends were on Mastodon or a service compatible with Mastodon. I would probably be here more, and I would not let my server error out for months at a time

I try to be the change I want to see in the world, but I spend a few months here and have like 2 interactions a day with people I know and like (at least compared to Twitter where I have dozens of interactions a day with people I know and like). Most of the people I interact with on Mastodon seem cool but I'm in the "getting to know you" phase. My best friend isn't here. My husband isn't here (he tried).

@darius having dramatically curtailed my twitter activity over the past however many months I'm kinda okay with not being on twitter even though all the people I know are on there—I think for me spending all day in a procedurally curated chatroom/public performance venue with all my friends and peers was its own very particular source of anxiety. I'm discovering I'm pretty okay with keeping up with people on a one-on-one basis, or subscribing to their e-mail lists or whatever

@aparrish I love my private Twitter which is just me and 40 very very close friends, I think it's an absolute boon to my life. I'd love to have that here

Tiny Subversions Mastodon

This is a private Mastodon instance just for Darius Kazemi. It wasn't all that hard to set up! I used this guide.
