Welcome to #CheckIn for Thursday, September 28
As many of you know, I did a bathroom renovation that included a glass wall at the shower. I never thought I would spend almost as much time cleaning the shower as taking the shower but I really like how it looks so, oh well. Is there something you really wanted that turned out to be way more maintenance intensive than you thought it would be? Did you make a change away or just take it as part of enjoying that thing?
This week’s topics are suggested by @cass_m but there’s always an element of randomness. Grab your beverage preference (pixel or not), follow Wheaton’s Law and enjoy the space.

#newhere - does this work for #introduction ? Hello, I just wanted to try out if I would like firefish as much as I guessed. Have some patience with me, I will have to learn how to get around here.
Expect postings about living in #Jordan, my #cats - and usually I cannot keep my postings off politics - I learned early that it rules all our lives, if we want or not. More visibly these days with the climate getting ruined.
Also, as I try to earn a bit with #translations I might write about books - books I read or I translated - or try to write myself, who knows.
There is more, but just for now ...
just came over from that bird site, hoping to have some fun here #newhere
I am a cute fluffy spider enjoying electronics, making and much more…

Big welcome to any newer arrivals to the Fedi!
To help new folk I've made a thread of key things I've learnt,
summarising my year ish of adventures in the #Fedi (#Fediverse is many linked platforms not just #Mastodon for example #Pixelfed replaces #Instagram). Maybe some find it useful, I try answer questions when I can too.

A very few big corporations should not own human communications, should not own social. It gives them too much power over how we see our world.
The #Fedi is a real alternative to this, where users choose for themselves. Freely choose without algorithms & without top down authority from a privileged handful in some corporation controlling the content for millions.

Time for an #introduction, cause I am #newhere:
me: 8-tentacled guide to the spirit realm.
please follow me for short stories, wisdom, #news and jokes from the xy dimension to which you can find a portal in your drywall.
If you put my toots on decorative pillows and sell them, I will commend your business acumen.
#boost, please. I am lonely, and the #fediverse is vast.

#friendica rugby forum page for the fediVerse just in timefor the #RWC2023
#Rugby union, commonly known simply as rugby, is a close-contact team sport that originated at Rugby School in the first half of the 19th century.
Rugby is simply based on running with the ball in hand.
In its most common form, a game is played between two teams of 15 players each, the reduced version with seven players has become an olympic sport.
#Permaculture is an approach to land management and settlement design that adopts arrangements observed in flourishing natural ecosystems. It includes a set of design principles derived using whole-systems thinking. It applies these principles in fields such as regenerative agriculture, town planning, rewilding, and community resilience.
Hello, my name is Amy & I'm a total noob here.
I am: disabled (CRPS), an introvert (INFP-T), multicraftual (cross stitch, crochet, pyrography, hand embroidery, sewing, acrylic painting, digital drawing, mixed media, etc.), short, & awkward.
Interests: all things paranormal, flamingos, gaming, rewatching the same shows & movies over & over, getting coffee with friends.
Looking forward to getting to know more crafty folk!
Also: hello! I'm Rey, a they/them, and your freshest birdsite transfer.
After a few months away from the tootin' I realized that I miss the sense of online community--and so I'm here now.
I was recently lured here, watched it from a distance for a while and now settled here.
From now on, I will be communicating the events I run for my players on #Drachenfels exclusively here, and not on certain other "social" sites, which I all will delete very soon. Here you don't need a login and can easily read & view pics! I hope for a pleasant, inclusive interaction and am very much looking forward to a new adventure here!
Btw, thanks @britt !

Found this idea for people who are #NewHere via @cyanrainnin
"To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same."
Rebuilding communities is good.
With the ongoing migration waves, it may be worth checking periodically to see who over here, was one of your former Twitter contacts.
This can be done automatically using the tool at.

I'm Tobias from #Germany and I'm doing an apprenticeship as an #IT specialist for system integration because I'm very interested in #networks, #servers, #hosting and #digitalization. Apart from IT, I am interested in #wildlife and #drone #photography.

Hello. Welcome to the Fediverse of decentralised social platforms. I'm posting from Firefish (a Fedi platform like Mastodon).
Do take an archive of your Twitter data, people are working on tools to automatically repost everything to Fedi.
You can reconnect with many contacts using
Also I made a thread to hopefully shortcut settling in & learning about Fedi social here. It's pinned to my profile or can be found here.
People are friendly here so don't worry about asking questions etc!

Hearing about some servers going under lately, here is your friendly reminder to back up your accounts. You can usually find it in settings - export somewhere. Doing regular backups will let you recreate at least some to most of your account elsewhere if something should happen to your instance. Make sure you got your following and follower lists saved somewhere. #newhere #feditips
I don’t think I ever made a proper intro post (with hashtags)?
Hiya, I’m Madi! I love drawing cute stuff while watching/playing/reading scary stuff! Digital art and Silent Hill lore are my forte, if you start talking to me about Silent Hill you’ll open the 7th gate and you don’t want that to happen. (AKA I’ll never shut up)
I’m super chill so don’t be afraid to say hi!
Hey there! I'm Hawkblood aka. Laura! 🌸
Nice to meet y'all!
I am a mainly watercolor artist from Germany who does a little bit of everything!
I love painting my OCs, nature or weird stuff - whatever I like and I feel inspired by!
With that let me show you my favorite piece of my OC Venus!
🌸 Stay safe! 🌸
Hello! Hoping to find my place on the Fediverse.
My wardrobe and sense of humour are often dark, with a few sparkly ✨ bits here and there. I'm into movies, live music, creative ventures, and nature among everything else. Pronouns are she/her.
A few hashtags:

Hi everyone, #newhere, finally, and curious about where this path will lead me to🌍
Hello #newhere, welcome! I know it can be a little disorienting and lonely to start out. Here's a tip: Follow some hashtags. The fediverse is much less slanted towards individual clout and more to shared interests. Following a hashtag will bring the posts right to your timeline, from anyone, including people you do not follow. Today is #FensterFreitag or #WindowFriday, which will bring pictures of windows to your feed. I also recommend #mosstodon and #bloomscrolling against doomscrolling.
When you're not #NewHere anymore, and you follow enough people to fill up your timeline, it can get quite difficult to find the most #popular posts. Especially, if you're scrolling a little less – maybe because you're on vacation 😎
So what do you use, and what can you recommend?

#newhere #introduction Hello everyone, new to this side of social media called the #fediverse. My interests are #comicbooks, such as #wolverine, #incrediblehulk, #avengers, #marauders, #shehulk, and #xforce; #movies, #technology, #tvshows. I work in #IT and studying to work in #cybersecurity. I’m just a #geek looking for friends and people who also geek out. Oh and #magicthegathering. Love to just chat about hobbies and interests. Anyways, I’ll make a separate posts of tags that I am into.
@kissane Perhaps to avoid (new) tooters to feel they are posting into a void, Mastodoners should 'like' a post more often, instead of only boosting it when they find the toot worthy for other people to see?
Boosting this toot would be nice. 🙏
👋🏼 im mo and new here. So far so good with a little bit of help from a friend 💛 I’m a queer, nonbinary, trans-masc person hoping to meet new people. I live with my family in va and I love anything outdoors, at the beach 🏝️, or in the gym 🧗🏼 I’m really into tech, video games, mma/bjj, honestly, anything active. I am excited to meet new folks and expand community. so say hello (or don’t)! #queer #transmasc #newhere #hi #hello #whatsup #millennial #pride #queerparenting #girldad #twomoms
#Feditips: You still have to follow someone to put them on a #list, but you can now exclude accounts on a list from showing up on your home feed. I love this feature, maybe you find it useful too, whether you are #newhere or not. The upside is anyone can remove themselves from a list. The downside is I have started following a massive amount of people.
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.
Okay, time for an #Introduction post.
To make a living, I'm a network admin for a public library. I've been a hobbyist photographer for over twenty years. Most of what I've been shooting the last few years has been landscapes, with a smattering of Lego in there, but I dabble in just about everything.
I've been on #Flickr since 2005, and still love the site today. Other Flickr users should feel free to add me there. The link is in my bio.
