With some extra time on my hands, and not enough time at the same time, I’m looking for things to do when I’m allowed a break from baby duty.
An idea crossed my mind, stayed there for a couple of days. I couldn’t scratch that itch in any other way, so I caved in. I went to mastohost and got myself a Mastodon instance.
I don’t need an instance, not by a long shot, but I really wanted to see one the way the administrators see it, and thought it would be cool to have a domain name I own on my Mastodon username.
My relationship with instances is an odd one. I have an account, my main account, at the mothership, Mastodon.Social, the one I created ages ago. I wanted to move to Fosstodon, or Writing.Exchange, but couldn’t take my old toots with me, so I stayed at M.s, but still have accounts at the other ones. Some instances fade out after a while, but I’m not scared M.s will meet the same faith, hopefully this would be the last instance to go, so I don’t have that excuse either.
I’m still posting mainly at @email@example.com, as I’m afraid I’ll just give up on my own, can’t justify paying for this toy, money would be better spent elsewhere. But I couldn’t NOT do it.
Feel free to say hi, if you’d like, you can find my at my brand new place, @firstname.lastname@example.org.
