#introduction since I’m finally (sort of) set up. I’m Eric. I’m a formet middle school English teacher turned education researcher/data scientist. I work for a large school division outside of Richmond, VA helping use data to improve stuff for students, teachers, and families. In my spare time - when I’m not hanging with my wife, 2 kids, and dog - I enjoy reading, CrossFit, and the occasional video game
Yeah, just put #Introduction somewhere in your post and it'll be caught by anyone searching for that hashtag.
Also use hashtags for your interests, like #Linux #BSD #FOSS #Justice #Poetry #MastodonAddictButICanQuitAnyTime 😅
There's no word search in Mastodon (on purpose) so you have to WANT your post to been seen by the general public through hashtags.

hi, I'm noodle. I don't post much myself, mostly just boost other people's toots or reply with dumb jokes.
sometimes I draw. sometimes I sing. in polyphony.
I'm a big fan of Linux, online privacy, and all things #foss. I work in a completely unrelated field and try to keep it separate from my online life.
huge sucker for #solarpunk - both the aesthetics and the philosophy, as well as #conceptArt & unfinished/in progress pieces.
Apparently we do an #introduction here, so: Hi friends! I’m a #frontend #webdeveloper and #author, although I had to give up writing for a few years when I went independent. Now I have time for it again, so I’ll be editing my #novel and being angsty about it, I suppose. I love in Nothern Indiana with my spouse and adorable son, where I also work on our house and yard with the rest of my dwindling spare time. 👋
Also, a brief #introduction: I'm Meghin, a #PennState grad and #journalist (#weare!) who has a passion for audience work in the digital journalism world. I love learning new things about it too and trying to incorporate that into my job.
Ok. Fine. I’ll toot.

I haven’t done my #introduction yet. Hello! My name is Jason, and I’ve spent the past two decades living in northern Japan, teaching English and being a nature photographer. I’m happily married and enjoy my life here. I’m looking to follow fellow photographers. Let’s get a great photog community going here. よろしくお願いします。
