@tomdeb this is what happens when you edit over a number of days and schedule posts to publish. 🙂
I've deleted my account, so the link is broke haha. Removed the link. Thanks mate.
@lazylinux I like Write.as in principle. We actually used to use them for the Fosstodon Hub, but there are lots of niggles with their backend that make it frustrating to use.
I think the performance needs work though. ~300kb for a text-only site is a lot. Sites hosted there do feel sluggish for what they are - https://gtmetrix.com/reports/write.as/PiLNBOQP/
Again though, good system if you just want to get going quickly.
@kev from the first two paragraphs I thought, isn't this almost the same as mastodon or pleroma? But I decided to continue reading anyway, not too harsh imo :)
@kev something I don't think you touched on is the utter homogenity of the community.
I had sincere high hopes for it, but the reality was so underwhelming.
I think the time I was dragged for supporting a strike was the nadir of my experience there.
@kev I don't think that's too harsh at all. Seems they set out to solve a problem but didn't quite. Sometimes solving only portions of a problem is worse than leaving it alone.
@kev I went in looking for a no-frills hosting plan, and I got that. The community surprised me, and I don’t totally agree with it being too American leaning. I talk to a LOT of people there who are not US based. Also felt very welcome from day one, up to today.
A cool and relaxed place where we can chat, and host a blog. If you have that elsewhere, great. If you don’t, Micro.blog could be for you. You had that solved going in.
@maique absolutely. Like I said in the post, if I didn’t have something already, I’d have probably gone with it, but the disconnect between my actual blog and my microblog would have been too jarring, I feel.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
