Hi, I'm Anthony, the owner of Diverse Tech Geek, a blog about media (including comics/animation), technology , and diversity issues in the above.
Re: #comics , my tastes are more Squirrel Girl, webcomics, and Lumberjanes. Not so much modern-comic-Batman/"grimdark."
Re: #tech , I use a mix of things. I have Ubuntu MATE on my laptop, but also use an iPhone.
Interested in seeing what Mastodon has to offer, especially as an alternative to running a Facebook page for my blog.
Looking over the list of graphic novels/TPBs read this year so far. The running themes mostly seem to be: TV spinoffs; comic strips/webcomics; something with gay characters; Squirrel Girl; Bronze Age superheroes; and stuff that's a combination of the above.
Also looking at the "to be read" list of TPBs/GNs, it's A) more of the same and B) a long list at this point (and just got longer today)...
Some additional notes about treating your blog like a business:
- make a schedule and stick to it (David needs to do this!)
- pay attention to analytics
- make growth plans and goals
- set realistic goals to celebrate
- keep learning! Invest in yourself!

Comics reading lately: the IDW "Jem and the Holograms" comics, plus a few collections of "Sarah's Scribbles."
Also updated my comics and (prose) book reading lists. Good thing the library here is thorough (Libby's a nice app), plus there's digital/subscription services (Comixology Unlimited, Hoopla Digital, Shonen Jump).
