Feels important to pen an post worthy of a follow or two... 🥴

A lover of and much more... I would not be where & who I am today if I hadn’t learned how to be & do gentle towards myself.

Favorite pastime since a year back is my pod of 5x5 meandering agenda-less conversations/season.

Giving Mastodon a try, curious as to what type of tankespjärn I might find here, as well as what value I can provide.

Part of my curiosity centers around:

What's the thing that makes you give Mastodon a 👍 ?

But I am also eager to hear your best tips for a total rookie like me - so please, tell me:

What to do, who to 'follow' (is that even what I'd be doing here?), do's and don'ts?

> If we all returned clothes that broke after 7 wears, demanding better quality, it wouldn't be financially feasible for companies to keep making and selling poor quality clothes. Can we affect change? I don't know.

That said, I have noted and appreciated HM talking about mending lately. Selling mending kits, partnering with tailors to offer help mending, and so forth. Are clothes beginning to be made to last slightly longer? Again, I don't know.

I går gav jag 17 av 20 stjärnor åt en traderaaffär. Det var ett företag, och de ringde upp mig och ville betyget skulle tas bort annars skulle de ge mig sämsta möjliga. Det fick bli negativt betyg för mig, obehagligt att de ska hota bort inte perfekta betyg.

@helenaroth When I heard this piece, this morning during my walk, I stopped and listened to it again. And I still can't wrap my head around it. Maybe I've been born a stoic or an eternally optimistic person, but... goodness...

I'm sorry for everyone who goes through that. And I'm very glad you found a way out of it.

As you said: We are humans. We should be human.
For me, that means making the best of it, and not talk yourself down. (We have plenty of others who do that, right? ;-) )

Gardening tip:

Leave out bowls or plates of water near your gardens at night. A lot of the animals that come by and take a single bite out of a vegetable before moving on are doing so for the water in the plant, not the tasty fruiting body. Leaving water out has ended all incursions by rabbits and I didn't have to use any form of repellent.

I was surprised about the "Epidemic of inner harshness". Do so many people really beat themselves up internally like that?

I've never done that so it was quite an intriguing thing to hear.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

@helenaroth It is interesting to experience these 'I know / knew this' moments when listening to you. As if I'm reminded of them out loud. 🙂 <3

@helenaroth Listened to a few more and I like them a lot. "Does it serve me" and "don't scratch the wound" really speak truths.

If a box with valuable papers, e.g. bonds, is found, after how many years would those papers become property of the finder instead of the original owner?
Does anyone know?

I never thought I’d share a TikTok thing, but my good man from Napa passed this to me tonight, and it’s impressive if true. I don’t even like rap. But damn. Even the brothas are like wtf?
