It's been one year since I last used Mastodon and pondering a potential comeback. Abandoning Twitter seems impossible, but I'm committed to continue scaling back my use of it. At the same time, I'm considering starting a personal newsletter as a different vehicle to keep folks up to date with my work. What do you think?
@ciaby Is it possible to just open the timeline of a specific Mastodon node?
Great! I'd love it if your newsletter were accessible over HTTPS (over Tor, obviously) and had an RSS feed too.
@ln4711 That sounds more like a blog, no? :)
A mail archive? :)
@ln4711 Fair. I've been using Mailtain, for a self-hosted PGP-enabled newsletter. I don't remember it providing archives though.
@ln4711 Err. Mailtrain. My "r" key is faulty.
@botherder we have civilised and interesting discussions here, quite amazing, please stay :)
I'd prefer a blog with RSS feed. Some blogs allow to send newsletter-like mails for new posts. Maybe you can have a blog plus newsletter with such a thing. :)
@botherder Abandoning Twitter is entirely possible once you stop caring
