I already have a bunch of things running on my home server, but I don't like exposing it outside of my network, so a VPS is quite nice for that.
@yuvipanda Minifluxs or Mastodons?
The Miniflux UI is quite nice I think, very simple and does what I need it to do, namely display me my feeds and articles. And its dark mode is pleasant.
Azure on the other hand is a bit of a mess due to how modular and configurable it is, and it isn't particularly clear what is going to incur a cost and what isn't.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
