Follow-up on the Fediverse … and a travel experiment

Since my post last week about federated social networking, I’m aware of only one reader who was inspired to create an account in the Fediverse: my mom 😀. For those of you who are close family or in-real-life friends of mine, my offer to hook you up on my own Mastodon server still stands. Just let me know.

I’m heading out of town next Friday — a week from today — for a short, three-day trip to South Dakota and Wyoming. I’ve decided this would be an excellent time to experiment with live-posting my travels on the Fediverse, rather than on my blog as I’ve done for so many years now. You’ll be able to find my posts at You don’t need an account to lurk. The link should also work in a RSS reader, if you still use one.

For those of you who’ve patiently and lovingly suffered through every word of my sometimes-multi-thousand-word travel blog posts, you may be in for some well-deserved relief. My Fediverse posts will be limited to 500 characters each.

    1. Thanks! I think so too. It’s out-of-the-box Mastodon software. I just had to invest a little effort and money setting up a virtual server to host it on. There are a few customizations I could do, but it looks pretty good the way it is.
