Like many people I’ve started posting on Mastodon. You can find me here (link also in the sidebar now).
I’m not sure what I’ll do about Twitter just yet. Elon posted a poll asking if he should step down and the poll ended with a majority yes vote. So if he really does abide by that I guess someone else will be taking over?
But for now I’m going to mostly post on Mastodon and just observe what’s happening on Twitter. It’ll be a shame if it goes down the drain as a result of all this drama but I can’t pretend it isn’t a little entertaining. And somehow I doubt this will be the end for the bird app but I guess we’ll see!
I’ve decided to do away with Wordpress since I always get frustrated with the admin interface anyway and end up just turning all the WYSIWYG stuff off. This new site is built on Jekyll and doesn’t require a database or even PHP so in theory it also doesn’t require me to constantly check for plugin updates and vulnerabilities. I can just write these posts in PHPStorm, build the site and upload it.
I considered moving my old posts over but I think I’ll just try to start from scratch and post on here more frequently. Hopefully this site will go on to contain more than just this “new site” before I decide to rebuild it again.
If you want to know more about me you can check out the “about” page which I’ve hopefully now populated with interesting information.
