I do most of my blogging on Dreamwidth, also at runpunkrun, and you can find my fic at AO3, where I'm Punk.

I'm pleased to note that even https://dolphin.town, my Mastodon server where the only letter you are allowed to post is "e", has seen increased activity in the last few days.
On Mastodon and #hometown, you can turn off boosts in the Home timeline by clicking the settings button at the top of the timeline. Not helpful if you're trying to find new accounts to follow, but if you're like me and want a chill timeline, it helps.
You can also turn off boosts from individuals: go to their profile and click the three dots. This is useful if an individual is a bit spammy on the boosts.
(This works on the web interface, not necessarily third party phone apps.)
A sincere tip for longtime fediverse people who would like their friends to stick around here longer than a week:
If you're on Mastodon or Hometown, you can click the "bell" icon in the profile of someone you follow. This will make it so that every time they post, it will appear in your notifications like an "@". I am enabling this temporarily for friends so that I remember to interact with them. This is important for making this place feel more lively and helps people stick around!
I regret to inform you that the "Louisa May Alcott was for sure a trans man" thread was started by uhhh a notorious internet-conspiracy-monger and general shithead

health; I'm fine, I just have ointment anxiety
I hate those ointments that are covered in warnings like "do not ingest, do not cover or bandage, do not apply to eyes, skin folds, groin, ears, elbows, knees, or toes, do not put on your human body unless directed to by a doctor, may cause cancer."
Anyway, guess what's on my hands and how I'm afraid to touch anything.
This is an incredibly good article about the TED talk era. Incisive analysis and critique.
