I am new to #fosstodon and want to introduce myself. I recently moved from another instance. I am going through a really challenging time in my life, and I was impressed by the awesome community here.
I'm looking for other people to follow on this instance and elsewhere in the #fediverse.
Thanks @binyamin. @maxgot, you've moved from another instance so you probably already "know the ropes" on Mastodon. I have a habit of welcoming new people here and I'm gonna send you my standard noob greeting. If nothing else it will give you a link to the custom emojis. We're somewhat tame and a pretty friendly instance. Hope you like it here.
@maxgot Welcome to Fosstodon. Things are slow at first but as you find people with similar interests and follow them, others will follow you. Create your bio, add an avatar pic and some emojis to your name so others can learn more about you. If you haven't, sending out an introduction listing your interests will help.
The custom emoji list is here:

Good luck and have fun.
@maxgot Welcome, Maxwell! It has been a really hard tine for me as well. But things are going to be better.
@maxgot Welcome to your favorite new instance! (lol, that's how I've felt about it when I first joined)
@maxgot Hello and welcome! The dicussion surrounding those topics you mentioned is usually unusually intelligent here, so hopefully you'll like this community! ^_^
@maxgot Welcome! Super happy to have you here!
Mental health is huge, and having a positive community around definitely helps
