An Intro to Me

For my first post, I thought I'd just introduce myself. I used to post mostly on Tumblr until the Tumblr Purge. I decided I didn't want to deal with Tumblr's weird arbitrary TOS changes and their capricious and highly inaccurate AI enforcers anymore, so I started to look for other sites to post on. I really like the decentralization concept of Mastodon, but I prefer a max word count on posts that makes it easier to write essays so that I can indulge my tendency to ramble on profusely.

I am a fanfic author for Legend of Zelda and Star Wars over at and Archive of Our Own under the same username as here. I enjoy writing, math and science, among other things.

Welcome to Nerdica and the #Fediverse!

It's more easy to get started when you use lots of hashtags, such as #newhere or hashtags related to your interests.

Hi! Ah, thanks! I surely will use more hastags in the future, but I'm more interested in using hashtags for filing and post relevance purposes than just because I mentioned something in a post. I am in fact new here to Friendica, though, so that is accurate! I do have a bit of familiarity with the Fediverse, though, since I've been on Mastodon for a few months now. I think the decentralized architecture of the Fediverse is a great idea. Helps prevent the single-point-of-failure issue so many other social media sites have.

@Unspeakable Horror You can file posts into folders, I believe, and there are also separate "categories" you can use. Folders I haven't tested, but seem to be like bookmarks. Categories allow searching your blog for topics. Tagging allows posts to be shared across the Fediverse.

Oh? I have a lot to figure out, then!
