@grave FWIW I was a bit of a reluctant Firefox convert, since I use multiple platforms and used multiple identities on Chrome, and I wans't sure how to port all of that over. I did have to change some workflows slightly but... I actually really like Frefox now, way more than recent versions of Chrome. u_u
@demitas I think they use the same extension engine, so... yeah. It'll probably be impacted, too, I suspect. :\
@lj_writes I used to be such a Google fangirl and every new Bad Google News Story is like a stab through my heart with the Lance of Personal Betrayal. *melodramatic tears*
Every day I get a little bit happier with my decision to switch to Firefox: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/01/22/google_chrome_browser_ad_content_block_change/
@alpine_thistle I know people who've only recently gotten their debuts in their 40s and 50s, so... there's always still time. 💜
So this is by and about Super Mainstream Tech Bloggers... but I also find it interesting in light of the conversations around platform #fandom is currently having: https://kottke.org/19/01/how-to-fix-social-media-by-injecting-a-chunk-of-the-blogosphere
@vrysius Welcome! :D
@enchantedsleeper It’s not... entirely intuitive. But try typing @ GwenfarsGarden@sunbeam.city (removing the space) into the search/follow/etc. box on Mastodon and it should show up in the profile column?
@doctorsidrat I mean, the thing with feedback is... Advice is always free for the giver, but ultimately it's *your* project. At the end of the day, you're never going to 100% please 100% of your audience; the only person you can really ever 100% is yourself. So... make something you're the happiest with, take feedback/advice where you need it, (politely) ignore the stuff you think is nonsense, and focus on the audience who do like what you're doing. 💜
@anneapocalypse @doctorsidrat Yeah. I mean... definitely get the whole "I wrote A Thing and posted it and wanted people to read it but now they have and I don't like the reaction and I'm having Regret!" thing. Been there, done that lol. And I think the whole "ask before linking, always!" is kind of... a preemptive reaction to that? So I get where it comes from.
But... still. Public stuff is for linking, IMO. That's just... the internet. 🤷
@doctorsidrat I'm definitely of the "if it's unlocked, it's fair game" mind (obviously, since it's my own policy, hah).
Like, remove things if people request it, don't linked to locked journals, etc. But otherwise... eh. 🤷
@grave Still so wild that gamers are in the news for doing something good for once. I like this new start to 2019...
@howler32557038 It's for if you want to separate your follows into, e.g. "Artists" or "MCU Fans" or "News blogs" or whatever, so you can view only posts from those people.
I... use them on Twitter a lot but I don't here, so... 🤷
I like writing books and monsters and writing books about monsters. Also the distributed web. I like that, too.
