The fediverse is a bit of a strange place: it’s like writing on one’s own site, because there’s this great culture of many small separate servers and communities, but it also is writing on someone else’s site, and with that comes a feeling of working within a community framework. That’s good, because it helps with keeping things reasonable and sometimes on-topic. But I do like the feeling of writing on my own site, where no one cares what I do (and yeah… no one reads it either!).
But still, it’s exciting that there are more and more people joining Mastodon and the others, and it’s nice to not feel like Twitter and Facebook are the extent of the web.
