Hey fediverse!

I tried setting up Writefreely, but it annoys me to no end, crashes constantly, can’t see my own posts on the main page and I’d like to avoid Wordpress. Does anyone know of any good self-hosted blogging software? (and yes, I’m very much aware of Hugo et al., that’s what I used before, but I want the convenience and already have MySQL setup).

Merci beaucoup!

Rant about millionaires 

Hot take: wanting to become a millionaire (or worse, a billionaire, like in that Bruno Mars song) is quite childish. Like people look at a million dollars as like this huge amount (which certainly is, if you gave a poor family a mil, they’d be forever thankful). If you actually get to 1M however (which is relatively easy or difficult with a conventionally high-paying job and some patience), you realize your life isn’t that different from back when you had 100K (yearly, hopefully). Look at the people who won millions at the lottery and lost it in a year or two.

The trick isn’t to become a millionaire as in having 10M dollars, but having a consistent cashflow and multiple sources of income. And even when you have that, you have to know how to invest it (it’s of no use to have 100K/month if you waste 95K on random crap).

My opinion is that most people simply have no money management skills, you have to teach that yourself before seeing yourself having those hundreds and millions in your bank account (offshore, obviously).

It's perfectly reasonable and possible for *both* of these statements to be true:

* it is better here than on Twitter
* this better *isn't good enough*

Federation and decentralization *as currently and inconsistently and idiosyncratically practiced* while better, are not good enough.

Digging in and saying that decentralization and federation *is* good enough is really, really unhelpful.

Also, the potential for better does not mean the practical experience is better.

The Toot! app lets you share posts via multiple formats woah! Via ‘image’ makes a screenshot of the post :picklerick:

Stop attracting your friends, colleagues, family and fans back to Twitter.

Don't post there. Don't fave things. Don't retweet. Don't DM.

Stop making it a social place for them. It's making them think they should be there.

Put your Mastodon address in your bio, and start posting over here instead.
