To the Tumblr refugees: welcome!

Having been on the Internet for over thirty years, I have one piece of advice for creative folks working online:

Control Your Platform.

Don't build a business around Facebook, Tumbler, G+, Geocities, MySpace, AltaVista, or any of these other third parties that claim to offer quick and easy results.

They all go away. Every one of them.

Build your own site. Use third parties to steer people to your site.

Third parties are the devil--useful devils, but devils.

*Checks Mastodon*

*Learns another mainstream social media network has done stupid things to alienate most of their userbase*

*The response from Mastodon is so positive/welcoming to new users of all types!*

😍 😊 *Is so thankful Mastodon exists!!*

*Thinks about checking Twitter and receiving the same news there with folks whining that no good alternatives exist*

😫 😑 😤

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

Last evening in Vegas. It's grown on me, I will admit.

All edited in Darktable. A superb FOSS editor once you get the hang of it.

A few photos from my time in Las Vegas so far. A Canon EOS 6D with A 50mm 1.8 and a 24-135mm (the basic one).

Once the people went into the giant Alexa, reunion commenced and they happily became one with the cloud. A slight burning smell was the only hint of the ceremony.
