An elderly former librarian, I pass things along to keep brain supple.
Sources r aggregated in #Feedly and a list on #Birdsite and items I feel worth one's time r distributed 2 #fb, Birdsite, here, and even g+. Most #garden/ag/#survival goes to fb, most #climate/#pol/#disaster/#recovery goes to the bird, and most #coop/#economy here.
I keep recurring snippets of text in TextEdit, and recurring imagery in a folder called Stuff.
This is done from a recliner on a Macbook, with lap dog & coffee.

You see a weathered stone obelisk bearing the inscription "beyond this point lies #birdsite / HERE BE NAZIS / abandon cute all ye who enter"
...or, borrowing from another fictiverse:
"That's the signpost up ahead -- your next stop: the Twitter Zone."
One thing I didn't expect from #Mastodon is how people actually respond to my toots/jinxes. I ask a question, looking for information, and I actually get useful info from many people. I've tried that on #birdsite a few times, nada. And I've used twitter for years, and follow many people I know personally.
I love you fellow witches (and mastonaughts)! Let's keep the corner of the Internet wonderful!
@bes delete facebook years ago. Never wanted or used it anyways, my "family" pressured me into it when I was younger.
The bir🅱's latest tactic to win me back is apparently to promote my account through their recommended follows sections.
I'm getting a much more regular stream of new followers now that I don't use it at all and have disabled the "all your friends like this one amazing chirp" notifications.
I'm starting to get upset at how subtly it's been manipulating us all this time.

I think this means I have in fact been silenced on #birdsite, unless I'm just misunderstanding something about how it works.
