The language of #mentalhealth is changing, and it's fraught with pitfalls for #journalists, #editors, #bloggers, #podcasters or anyone who discusses it. I know because a reader took me to task for using a word (disorder) that offended her.
So I did some research.
Turns out there’s no widespread agreement—between or even among patients and healthcare professionals—on how best to describe many mental health conditions.
So, my take on what we #writers must do:

"After two decades publishing local #bloggers writing in 52 languages, what’s #GlobalVoices fate in this strange era of the Internet? Georgia Popplewell, the long-time managing director of Global Voices joins the show to talk to her co-founder @ethanz about the blogosphere of yore and why we’ll never stop needing global, local perspectives."
I have recently been enjoying People and Blogs, a weekly newsletter that interviews bloggers about their blogs and processes.
I shared a few thoughts about it in my blog.

I think that many bloggers have their blog, they write and publish their posts because they want to gain a following and please their readers, likes, comments and especially follows are the reward they need, it’s what they crave. I say many but not all, I’m sure there are also many who don’t require this reward to feel relevant. Maybe they have a blog and write posts for their own pleasure, maybe they wish to educate, enlighten, perhaps they have an agenda to push or just want to keep a journal, or they have some other reason to blog that I haven’t thought about.
I personally don’t believe any of these reasons is wrong, they are all equally relevant and equally good reasons to blog, blogging after all is a very personal thing to do and whatever your reason for doing so is the correct reason in your eyes and as it’s your blog then who am I, who is anyone to say you should be doing it for some other reason ?
As for me, well I write my blog for myself, simply for my own pleasure, I do it to please myself, I just enjoy putting my thoughts down into words and getting them out there, I am a purely selfish blogger. My blog is my own and I write it for me, yep selfish. Of course if I entertain someone, educate someone or whatever then great that’s nice to know, if folk like my post, leave a comment of some kind, or even become followers then of course I’m not gonna complain, that’s a kind of validation right there and who doesn’t like a little validation 😁
Another thing is that a lot of peeps have a blog which centers on a particular topic, they write posts on a specific subject, something they know about and are passionate about, this places them into a particular niche and from that niche they gain a following. As long as they continue with their prime topic as the main subject of their blog then that niche following will probably stay with them as they will find the kind of things they wish to read and will keep coming back.
Now it may be be hard to tell so far as it is a very young blog and I’m just sort of setting it up and feeling my way into it, but my blog will end up having quite a wide variety of topics and be quite general in nature as I have quite a few interests and intend to use it as a catch all general personal blog and journal.
Therefore my blog won’t really have a specific niche as such, there might be a post about photography, followed by one about art, then aquariums, perhaps one about bonsai, a journal entry, a simple status update followed by a mad rant about something in the news and who knows what else in the future !!
This gets me wondering about my little blog, whether or not it will find an audience at all as it doesn’t really have a niche as such, just many random topics, but then again of course as I’m doing it purely for myself, as a selfish blogger then perhaps this doesn’t matter, maybe not 😁
What Do You Feel About Blog Commenting? This Is What Two Bloggers Think https://hughsviewsandnews.com/2023/10/05/what-do-you-feel-about-blog-commenting-this-is-what-two-bloggers-think/ #BlogPromotion, #Bloggers, #BloggingAdvice, #BloggingCommunity, #BloggingHelp, #Blogs, #Commenting, #Comments, #HelpWithBlogging, #QuestionsAboutBlogging
Creative folk out there - #Writers, #Bloggers, what have you - how do you feel about abandoning projects? Specifically projects that just aren't working for you (aren't holding your interest). I'm trying to be okay with it, but what trips me up is getting excited about a project and then that spark fades and I let it go. How do I identify something that is worth pursuing?
Random #bloggers declaring things "crossing the picket line" means nothing. Read the actual goddamn strike #information from the actual goddamn #strikers. Stop calling for your own #boycotts, stop trying to decide what is and isn't #scabbing based on your own #opinions, stop making judgment calls disconnected from the actual demands of the actually-striking #workers.
Y'all have got to start reading the #unions' official documents before arbitrarily deciding what is or isn't "proper #solidarity" based entirely on your own feelings. Stop muddying the waters just because it makes you feel more involved."
If you must cover AI, just know that most of what you write will turn out to be wrong, and I won't be reading your story anyway (and so won't a whole lot of other people). Beyond the snark, I offer actual reasoning and advice in the Writer's Guide:
Writing from a point of experience has always been strong for me. Honesty makes for the best creativity, whether it's songwriting, blogs, or stories.
Anyway, I have the itch again. To start writing. I'm looking for a couple things, first if there's any interest from my followers on fediverse, but also to connect with other #bloggers and #writers. I am working on a blog entry now, I can share the link when I'm finished if there's interest. #blogs #nsfwblogging #writersofmastodon

putin’s Influencers: The #bloggers selling russia’s War
Known in russia as “Z Bloggers”, they spread fake news about the war by embedding with military units, sharing exclusive footage from the frontline, and calling upon young russians to enlist in the army

Any other #bloggers get nervous if they don't have several blog posts scheduled for future publication?
I've currently got enough posts to last a week. So I'm doing OK.
I also have a bunch scheduled for 2025, and 9 for 2030!
Anyone else doing the same thing?
How often have you started reading a technical article on your phone, yet given up halfway through because you got tired of scrolling sideways through code blocks? If you have your own #blog, are you giving this same annoyance to your readers?
As indie #bloggers we have an advantage here over blog platforms, we may as well take full advantage of it.
It’s really fun spotting #liberals who spend way too much time on this #website and have convinced themselves that the #transgender commie #bloggers have somehow made #imperialist jingoism an #oppressed minority position and not like, the dominant strain of #political thought in every western #country on the #planet
Just like the idea of @EU_Commission to force #eCommerce - only to pay #VAT in the customer's juristiction didn't actually hurt the #GAFAMs but killed many #competitiors like #AndroidPit's #AppCenter which had way better terms for #Developers and #Customers...

I'm a trans queer, #polyamorous, and #Autistic sex blogger, author, and editor out of Saskatoon, SK. Currently working hard on my first solo book, "How Do I Sexy? A Guide for Trans Queers", #publishing with Thornapple Press next year!
Always appreciate some good #queerbooks recommendations too.
Dear fellow #bloggers,
do you write your posts in your blogging platform or do you keep (many versions of) your drafts local?
My workflow looks like this:
- Have a @scrivenerapp project (folders for year/month)
- Create posts in those folders
- Have different drafts as sub-sections in this project.
- Copy the final draft in #Wordpress
- Refine using #LanguageTool (or #Grammarly)
- Add Links and small changes.
- Forget updating my scrivener project
May I be better off otherwise?
1. Write a #petPeeves post about your favourite #DB #technology with a #clickBait title.
2. Suggest absolutely nothing approaching a technical solution for said issues.
3. Enjoy your newfound #tech #influenza status.
Russian war bloggers' reactions to news of Putin's post-rebellion meeting with Prigozhin range from mockery to approval
Another good article with #blogging tips for any kind of Website.
I've been creating content for Websites since 1996. I've learned a thing or two along the way.
If you’re a blogger (of any kind, not just a sex blogger), reply with one of your favourite posts/a post that you think is especially’you.’ Could be something you really enjoyed writing, something you’re especially proud of, one you poured your heart into, whatever.
Send me your fave post!
The Fediverse tools include #Plume which seems not to be supported anymore and #writefreely which looks nice but would require some work, seems to require a server. I have a domain and hosting at Google but don't know if that can work.
Advice? Ideas? Offers of collaboration? All are welcome. 🙂
Any other #bloggers schedule things really far in advance?
I've just written something to be published in 2026!
ICYMI, florida is proposing a law that requires #bloggers in Florida who criticise the local government or officials individually to register with the state and be investigated for fines.
This is a big escalation of anti-freedom of speech laws previously passed to:
- social media platforms
This is about saying individuals don’t have freedom of speech.
A true pioneer. One of the people who paved the way for a whole generation to make a career online — and far too few people know her name.
Hi! I'm Latice, I discovered Mastodon after reading several articles about social media and personal branding on Medium.
My expertise lies in digital advertising strategy, copywriting, and #design
Additionally, I create video game content.
I am not interested in “mommy blogs” or fashion, fitness, super niche industry, or “content creation” or productivity etc I don’t want to be sold a course, or posts rammed full of affiliate links.
I just want to read about average people & their own thoughts & lives & the things they genuinely are interested in. The writers & hobby bloggers!
Together: Musk & Thiel simultanously flooded the zone with 💩 and it’s working.
You'd think the party that keeps talking about the Constitution and their rights would have actually read the documents.
Then again, they've shown they like selected passages of their beloved reading materials as opposed to the whole thing.
Florida bill would make bloggers who write about governor register with state https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2023/03/florida-bill-would-make-bloggers-who-write-about-governor-register-with-state/
I'm trying not to fall out of love with the #PersonalFinance space. I am tired of influencer-style content; being scared/lectured on money stuff, early retirement stories (often doesn't apply to us non-Americans/Europeans), geoarbitage (irritates me), networth updates (I FOMO on these) & cryptobro stuff.
The AI images aren't such a bad idea. But my concern is - in the future, will we have #bloggers writing their own #blog posts or people just tossing out prompts that get stitched into blog posts written by machines?
Many times I come upon a blog with years, sometimes decades of history, and I wish the blogger had a convenient ebook I can read from my Kindle.
Why don't more #bloggers do this?
John Scalzi did: https://www.goodreads.com/series/176050-whatever
But he's like an actual writer, you protest! But is your blog throwaway content?
As a #reader I'll gladly pay for blogs that have been turned into ebooks. Seriously!
Curious to know what you think as a reader or blogger.
Do you have a particular goal for your writing?
Feel free to share!
For me, my goal is to provide fun and thrilling stories for entertainment. To take everyone on new and wild adventures featuring underutilized mythical creatures. And so far, Hydra's Wake is doing exactly that!
How are you doing with your goals?
Does anyone have good example of a blog that showcases the authors writing from multiple sources (not just the blog) in a seamless way? I’m talking more than an about page with a few links.
There are other such tools I’ve seen too. I can’t wait to see more Mastodon posts being quoted in blog posts and #news articles.
It's interesting to see the #hungarian #bloggers are mostly quit their #wordpresscom blogs around 2013-2014. I mean there was a massive extinction event in the #blogosphere.
What's happened then You may ask.
So, the Google just killed their own #RSS reader in 2013, and #Chrome does not support RSS feeds anymore. (Just a bunch of XML you see with it navigating to a RSS URL).
Same time the big #socialmedia walled gardens are getting on steroids.
And the #monetization began.
Where are all you sexy people at? I want to connect with #sexworkers, #sex #educators, #sexologists, sex theorists, people into #kink, #spanking and #BDSM, #erotica writers, sex #bloggers and #porn makers. I miss the #adult community on the birdsite and am determined to find or create a new one here. Please boost this post to help me find mah people!
I'm going to take another crack at an #introduction.
I run a bunch of #websites which I talk about a lot.
If I'm not writing, coding, or watching nerdy TV, then I am probably asleep.
A question to #bloggers - how far in advance do you schedule your posts?
I've got a few set to post in 2025 and in 2030 - on specific anniversaries.
Anyone else do that?
Pro tip for #bloggers who want to preserve their posts: back up your most important items onto Archive.org. All you have to do is take a URL from each blog post you publish, and throw it in the WayBackMachine.
Being the utter doofus that I am, I blew up everything on my server, including my articles. But! All of my most important stuff lives on. I lost my drafts, but the things that saw light of day are just fine.
You can easily access this resource at https://web.archive.org/save
