I've spent the past week getting to know myself better and doing some self care.

I am proud to come out as a gay man.

I never thought I'd have the courage to do this and I really want to thank the fediverse for helping me be comfortable with who I really am.

I love you guys ❀️

"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."

We also improved comment threading, more federation updates will be released this weekend. πŸŽ‰

Updated the join link on pixelfed.org to point to fedidb.org/software/pixelfed until the new instance picker is ready.

I'm working on a new instance picker that will be easier to use and filter instances based on interests.

Stayed up all night working on :pixelfed: and I start work in a few hours, minds well stay up πŸ˜…

I still think about the final episode of whenever I hear this song. Miss that show, but it couldn't have ended on a better note.

FediFollows has been on the #Fediverse for one year! πŸŽ‰ πŸŽ‚

A huge thank you to everyone who suggested accounts so far, and to the accounts themselves πŸ‘

Hand-curated directories are often seen as old-fashioned, but I think they have a role in getting people started on new decentralised social media.

FediFollows currently has 2.3K followers across a wide range of instances, so even people who don't follow me are more likely to see these interesting accounts in their hashtag searches.

Go Fedi!

I might not be the best person to give advice on development, but I do think experienced AP devs should be doing more to help mentor new projects and developers for the sake of the .

I'll never forget the times that @Gargron boosted my early Pixelfed posts, but I feel like we're not in that era anymore.

We all started something from nothing, and the real ones don't let ego define them πŸ˜‰

If you know anyone working on an ActivityPub project and they need any advice/feedback/help or want to spread the word, tell them to DM me! I am more than willing to help or spread awareness!

This song means a lot to me.

It helped me through a pretty difficult stage of my life and I still get emotional towards the end.

"It's going to be okay, I promise you."

Never give up.
