Hello, and welcome to the #fediverse!

@beeman @kev Finding the right people to follow definitely takes some effort.
✅ initially open up every single person and their follows in a new tab
✅ check if you like their type of toots and and if you do then follow them
✅ then watch your Home timeline and block folks you don't enjoy and add more folks you do
✅ you can also search by hashtags for topics of your interest.
