I have literally no idea if I'm even using this website correctly.

I just want to see nice things and read funny posts.

Hi all, work as a transport planner (actually a cycling officer) in Falkirk, from Glasgow originally and officially an old fart. Interested in literally everything, such is the curse of my disordered mind. Mental health advocate and long term depression/anxiety sufferer.

The fediverse is a true social network, in that it actually requires you to do "networking" and be "social."

Think of it like a crowded pub. There are no celebrities here. You'll need to make an effort to meet people, no algorithm pushes content on you. To find more people, and new content, you'll need to talk to people, and see what they're into. You can move around, but you need to get along with people sitting near you.

These are commonly labeled "problems," but I consider them "features." #feditips

hello! we're a #queer #yiddish #anarchist pay-what-you-can down to £0 café in glasgow, scotland

the food, the music, and the language is multi-cultural: yiddish, scottish, & more

we run irl and livestreamed queer, jewish, yiddish, and anarchist events

we're an interfaith collective who are mostly queer, mostly trans, many jewish, many goyish, and all anarchists.

sometimes direct action is burning a polis car; sometimes it's feeding people 🍇

If you're new to the Fediverse, here's what made the platform work for me: aggressively following and unfollowing new people.

Whatever standards you've built up on Twitter for deciding to follow someone, throw them out the window. Follow someone because they made a funny or insightful post. Follow someone because their bio says they like pesto. Follow someone because they have a cute fursona. Anything really.

Following is free. And if it doesn't work out, unfollowing is also free.

Hi everyone, I'm Robert and this is my first day here!

I'm most likely to post about horticulture, old gravestones, and things about my day to day life in Scotland.

Fan of weird things and people in general.

Looking forward to getting to know lots of you 🙂

Can't wait for the new arrivals to discover they can use their fedi account to follow video channels on @peertube instances, photo stories on @pixelfed instances, events on @mobilizon , musicians on @funkwhale , and @owncast streams.
