Next time I make a blog, I'll be sure to have a library of cringy, made up faces that I can use for the featured image. Applied, of course, to weird tiled backgrounds, complete with lots of barely clothed anime girls.

That way I can get all the clicks.

Playing with -- just like using Firefox to sync bookmarks, but without the second-class citizen feeling from using Firefox.

Paid $11 for a year of Wallabag hosting. Between it and Miniflux, it's a hard sell *not* to have them host.

Looking at, it seems like there are a *lot* of variables in spinning up your own mastodon instance.
