When I made the choice to leave traditional social media (excluding Fosstodon), I read a lot of articles attempting to find out what it would be like. However, most of what I read was from someone just leaving for a few weeks as an experiment, not someone who had left for good.

Here's my attempt at writing a summary of my thoughts, why I left, the pros/cons, and what I would have done differently. Hopefully it will prove helpful to someone in a similar situation. 🙂
