I have decided I'm going to give this Write.As blog a go after all, I just discovered the other parts of the puzzle such as “Read Write.as” and the remarks option and reckon it's worth trying out to have a blog in the Fediverse after all 😊
One of my aims on this, my Linux laptop, is to eventually cut my ties to the big internet sites such as Facebook, Twitter and yes even my WordPress blogs and replace everything with Fediverse and opensource sites instead. I won’t be giving up completely on the mainstream internet for a while though, I’ll still have them on my Chromebook laptop. And for now of course my WordPress blogs still cross post to the Fediverse via the rather wonderful ActivityPub plugin.
But my wish is to do away with all of this mainstream (evil Empire) stuff and migrate totally to the Fediverse and opensource side of things (the Republic) all powered by Linux 😁
As far as the Fediverse is concerned I already have a number of presences listed below…
I set this blog up thinking I had to start a brand new blog here in the Fediverse but then I discovered an activitypub plugin for WordPress that means I can use my already existing blog and cross post directly to Mastodon.
