WriteFreely lets you self-host a single federated blog or a community of blogs. It's written in Go / #golang, it's lightweight, and runs everywhere -- even on a Raspberry Pi! (We tried 😁)
We just launched v0.1 this weekend, and v0.2 is already coming out early this week. You can try a full demo here: https://pencil.writefree.ly
Get started with hosting or find a permanent instance here: https://writefreely.org
I have a hard time justifying to myself spending 200+ EUR on keycaps (but they are so great... Look at them: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/gmk-carbon-custom-keycap-set )
So I realize I've been thinking of social networks as graph-based and set-based.
Graph-based means you follow other users and get a feed of their posts. (E.g. Facebook, Goople, birdsite, here).
Set-based means you are either in or out and if you're in, your feed is the same as everyone else who's in. (E.g. subreddits, mailing lists, USENET groups, web fora.)
I'm finding this to be a useful distinction.
