Cross-posting (or not)
If I didn't want anyone to read the things I post online, I'd just use my typewriter and toss everything in a drawer. Since I'm (mostly) not doing that, I must want people to read me, right?
One thing that helps “get the word out” about new posts is to cross-post everything to social media. I use Micro.blog for that. I just point it at any of my RSS feeds and each post is immediately sent to my Twitter and Mastodon accounts. Easy peasy!
That said, I've disabled all cross-posting again. Sure, I want people to be able to read my stuff, but I don't want to force them to.
This feeling started over at my wiki. It's nice to be able to write things and have them just sort of sit there, quietly, not disturbing anyone. A few people come to visit every day, and that makes me feel good. It's all I need, really. If I do want to share something, I can simply post a link, manually, like a Neanderthal.
For those interested in getting updates, there are several ways to subscribe.
Thanks for stopping by!
