Day three on Mastodon, and I think I'm starting to get it a bit more.
I feel like my timeline is a great mix of folks who I recognize from Twitter and new folks I've never seen before.
I'm feeling a bit more calm- not compelled to check Twitter. Perhaps even more focused? Don't know how long that'll last, but I'll take it!
One thing that I keep telling myself as I grow into the #Fediverse is that it's not going to replicate what I had on legacy social media.
The boosts are less important than feeling boosted by y'all. Engagement isn't a metric, it's a feeling. The numbers don't matter, it's the community that matters.
@vkc it gives me the same feeling leaving windows for linux gave me back in 2008. On a 2-in-1 HP laptop w/o any real drivers. In a (basically) less-developed country on the other side of the globe, without all the amenities of home. With no-one to ask, only research, try, test, crash, rinse, repeat...
Basically: It was a lot of fun. It *is* a lot of fun. (:
A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region. Predominantly queer with a focus on urban and social justice issues.
