Hah, take that to-do list! Already knocked two things off! >:D
Good morning everyone! I've got my coffee and ready to get to work! Happy friday!
Good morning! Got lots to do today!! What's nice is I've got coffee to get me through it.
Wow people here are so nice! Great to work with for art commissions!
The best thing about Mastodon right now is the incredibly indie slant to the creators who've migrated here. Queer folks, folks of color, and women creating and telling their own stories in a space unencumbered by industry gatekeeping sentiments? This is great.
When I joined masto, I gravitated towards following creative peeps and noticed a thing that's pretty common to all of us: we feel guilty for promoting places that people can buy our work or otherwise support us financially. So I started the #CreativeToots hashtag for that very reason. Got an Etsy page? Online store? Patreon? Selling a piece of art? Throw that tag on it. Do it with unfettered abandon. Everyone else: Look at that tag for artists to support. Buy their stuff. Help them create. <3
This site seems cozy 😁
Also to explain some concepts (as I see them):
Your HOME TIMELINE - is your toots + your friends toots + whatever they Boost (which is RTs)
Your LOCAL TIMELINE - is all the toots that are on your instance (server!)
Your FEDERATED TIMELINE - is all the toots that are on your federation (clump of instances)
Hm wonder if I should make an art account to join an art server with?
Woah where'd the morning go?!
