I tooted this three months ago, might be worth a redo:
"Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same."

Pinned toot

Welcome, new Mastodon arrivals!
A suggestion for attracting new friends and acquaintances: toot a self-introduction with roughly seven hashtagged interests or as many as you want. Hashtag 'introduction' or 'introductions.'

Likewise, you can search for likely people who share fellowship in your community by searching for hashtagged interests.

Example:







Leaving social media may make feel you isolated but it's better than the loneliness that overcomes you while looking at the timeline with broken expectations.

Over the weekend I built a #speed-reading web #extension for #Firefox called "Stutter". It will soon expand to cross-browser and mobile support.

addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

Try it out and let me know how it works for you. If you have any suggestions, you can log them on the github page here:

You can see planned next steps on my todo list on the README

Monday at 2pm pst is Mental Health Topic day for my live stream at twitch.tv/mrfunkedude where I try to create discussions around mental health.

The topics will be... "Forgiveness for others and ourselves.", "Is your inner voice your friend?", and "What are your favorite simple things that bring you joy throughout each day?"

If you have any thoughts, or stories about either of these subjects, please either reply here or in DM if you want to keep anonymity, and I'll read them for my show.

For those who use email addresses with common names that the less nimble-figured have entered in error into a retailer's or broker's : have you ever to find out who's using your name? Has the database owner ever admitted that a script removes nonalphabetic from an email address before insertion? Do they dawdle when you tell them your unsubscribe command must be executed immediately, because you never registered your address with them?

There's no pleasing everyone. I can toot once every two-three weeks, about innocuous subjects, people come and go. I toot about something important, like pass along advice of atypical reporting method to moderators at this high-population instance, and people unfollow; even my friends, so maybe this is a cue to limit my even more.

I updated my with a new post.
The new post is painful, so reading is not for the trollish, very sensitive, or the anxious. It's for those who can spare job-searching organization and self-healing tips and resources.

's 2018 _The Woman in White_ some of this may be my mood and outlook (unmentionable here) but I do not like it. I understand the economy of characters adapting from a long novel and numerous characters' accounts, the quick pace owing to time. This miniseries adaptation is not for readers of the book.

How many English-language users are aware that Kibo Software, the owner and administrator of the instance, is reachable only by the Privacy Policy form and the email address on mastodon.cloud/about/more?

Has anyone on reported recently on a user? How soon did the moderator reply?
