Hey everyone! This is my semi-professional account, inspired by current events over on the bird site.
I actually already have some other accounts in the fediverse, for several years now. So I'm glade for the attention the fedi gets and I'm looking forward for some action on here!

This is my check-in toot from my business trip. Have a good one y'all.

Mr. Pancakes wresting with his BFF Maverick. Maverick is a month older, but white golden retrievers are a large breed, while Bernese Mountain Dogs are a giant breed. This helps Mr. Pancakes wrestle on even footing.

@ac By the way: thanks for putting your birdsite crossposts (especially retweets) behind a CW!

Mastodon is cool but it lacks my favorite feature from birdsite which is the timeline jumping as soon as your eyes see an interesting post that you'll never find again

Ich weiß das wird einigen nicht gefallen was ich hier sage, aber egal ob neu hier oder schon länger da: Nutzt die Mute und Block Funktion. Je nach Client geht das sogar zeitlich beschränkt. Ihr müsst euch nichts anhören was euch belastet, frustriert oder stört. Ihr könnt sogar selbst ganze Instanzen blocken. Das gehört hier ganz natürlich dazu und ist nichts negatives. Ihr schuldet niemandem eure Aufmerksamkeit oder Zeit. Blocken und muten ist self-care!

:BoostOK: I like to imagine that #Mastodon instances that have a large number of users like mastodon(.)social are like big cities like New York or San Francisco, and Mastodon instances that have a much smaller number of users is like a quaint little town in the countryside where everyone knows everyone. It depends on which you feel more comfortable being in.

In today's episode of "what drained my energy today":
Not finding the solution of a complex tech problem while also doing chores for my next trip in some days.

Just finished a bag of 🍵
I like that one a lot, great daily morning tea.

Today I watched and I'm torn. Did I waste my time doing so or not?

What consequences does opting out of search indexing exactly has? I've read some technical details, but I'm not sure what they are implying.
Does it only disable appearing in Google searches? Or does it also affect my visibility here in the fedi?

(Background: There is an option to disable search indexing in the settings. It only says "Affects your public profile and post pages".)

I'm already deep into preparations for my next trip, after only being home for three days. Yeah, that sucks, but at least I'm dancing while sorting clothes etc. So I got that going for me, which is nice.

Wait, maybe it's connected to me opting out of search indexing, in my account settings? I'll do some research...

Interesting, looks like I hit some kind of threshold. Suddenly I just don't find that many new people any more. Gotta level up my hashtag game I'd guess.

@jakesmolka yes! A lot of alaska’s rainforest hi is within the Tongass national forest, but we are part of the largest temperate rainforest on the planet. The Tongass NF stores 40% of the carbon stored in all US national forests as I recall! I

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

I'm having my first big talk in about a month and I'm hyped! And nervous!
