My post today reflects some thoughts I've been thinking about as I look for better ways to approach privacy myself and look at some of the really bad takes I've seen in the area. https://chriswiegman.com/2020/06/privacy-empathy-and-the-zero-sum-game/
Huge thanks to @kev to pointing out that my h-card didn't actually show my name 🤣
That has now been corrected. With help from https://indieweb.org/h-card and Kev's site source code (I don't know how I could have done it without that).

Today, I checked my stats on my blog and discovered some fellow bloggers had responded to and mentioned my post on Shame and Blogging (https://www.brandonsjournal.com/shame-and-blogging) from a week ago.
I gotta say, after years of feeling like I was writing to no one its nice to know that I've found a community of bloggers through Write.as, #100DaysToOffload, and Mastodon that support one another. These past few months have been the most rewarding time I've spent on the internet ever.
I am new to mastodon, but it seems like a comfortable community. I'm currently working on an IT specialist course and am interested in software development, especially open source. I hope its okay for me to join although I don't have much coding experience, I'm learning and would love to be able to contribute to a project someday.

Since joining #fosstodon I've realised that #blogging isn't dead, and even more so during the #100DaysToOffload series. So I've shut down my medium account, bought a cool domain 😂 and been working on a Jekyll setup that works for me. I have a few interesting technical posts in the pipe but my introductory post is a nostalgic look at my life in games https://cyb.org.uk/2020/06/09/my-favourite-video-games.html . Some initial encouragement and comments may lead to more regular posts from me! 😆
So.... I'm here I guess. Hi #fosstodon ?
Why I'm Here / Things Donut Hates:
- the big social media sites
- lack of privacy in today's connected world
So now I'm tooting instead of tweeting.
The company I work for have said that they're in no rush for the workforce to return to the office (which I think is the right decision and its awesome to see they're putting the team first)
This crappy computer chair I have is getting worse, so I've invested in a new one. After some research I opted for a DX Racer Drifting.
They seem to get good reports online, anyone here got one?
I am so happy that I chose #Namecheap as my domain host.
Nope, probably not gonna happen - build is failing on Netlify and I don’t have time to troubleshoot it. Sorry folks.
Thinking about starting a #WebRing would anyone be interested?
I've added a little more info about my intentions for my newsletter and what you might be able to get out of it.
Feel free to take a look..or not. 🙂
