It was long coming, the day when something happens - and all of a sudden, many people find themselves without a “home” online. Who could’ve guessed even a year ago that an idiot nazi narcissist man-baby would buy all of Twitter and immediately start turning it into a shithole of his dreams?! Not me, I didn’t see this coming.
Now that all is said and done, I’m really glad that I’ve kept this corner of the web for myself. Mostly, sure, I use it to meditate and fidget with technology. I mean, I’m only human and maintaining a blog is hard work, and I’m lazy. But given current situation around the web, I guess, this is it. Time to be lazy on my own website rather than on someone else’s.
There’s no statement here aside from fuck Elon Musk. Just re-establishing the blog and settling into the new blogging routine.
Oh, and just give me a few days to turn back RSS here! This, actually, is the only thing, I think, may come out of this mess as a net positive: resurgence of RSS. I still miss Google Reader dearly, but Feedly appears to serve me well so far. So I’m going to brush the dust off of my RSS feeds and get this party started!
P.S. I do experiment with alternative social media outlets. The latest one I liked quite a bit is Counter Social, check it out.
