This week I want to update my experience on the newest-to-me platform I started using, and do an update on what’s going on and where I am in my quest for an online social life that replaces Big Social Media in my life. For those who need to catch up, I left Big Social Media …

Saturday Social – Sept. 4, 2021 Edition

Mastodon Heartbreak

Here is a sad, sad tale… When I joined Mastodon I linked my account with the instance called theres.life. I followed a few people and had some lovely discussions and really enjoyed the posts there.
