My main instance crashed while trying to update, so I am back on this instance for now. I've lost all my followers so boosts welcome! I'm a Blind and gay writer that writes YA and romance, but reads a bit of all fiction. I blog about traditional publishing and Disability representation in books.

A Really good article from Teen Vogue about the fact people love paying disabled folks a pittance (And do so legally):

a reminder, to no one in particular, that "there's no ethical consumption under capitalism" is an indictment of capitalism not those who are surviving under it.

I'm a Blind writer that loves reading, accessibility, and all forms of anti racist art. I am offline more than online, and I can't stand 99% of the non-disabled online left. I follow a lot of Twitter accounts on here and crosspost. I use IFTTT to post via email, RSS, and SMS. I logon once every 2 months. My mailing list is where all the fun happens.

help pixel pay for college :boost_requested: 

hello friends

I just got my final bill for my last year of college. $17,200. I only get about $2,000 in loans. That still leaves $15,200.

I currently live with my transphobic parents and cannot sustain living here after school. I've paid for all of my schooling through working up to five jobs at a time up to now, but with each year that passes by, the school has been rolling back my financial aid and it has been very difficult to keep up. I'm still living on a meal a day.

If you'd be willing to toss coin to a neurodivergent, queer, trans, east/southeast asian person, my handles are below.

Thanks to everyone who has supported me thus far.

As mentioned in the recent Owncast video, the project is rewriting the web interface and would love your help. If you have frontend web development experience (We're using React), or want to gain experience, now is a good time to get involved. You can have your ideas, opinions and work in the next major revamp of Owncast. Topics that are being worked on right now: Mobile support, accessibility, chat design. I've heard people criticize all these things, so now is your chance to make it better.

Looks like a lot ofpeople are confused/annoyed by Mastodon and many other Fediverse platforms not backfilling old posts when an account is followed.

This complete lack of backfilling means that many new accounts or those with few followers may appear completely blank, even if they've posted lots of interesting stuff.

If you agree and think Mastodon should backfill at least some posts when people follow an account, please give this issue a thumbs up:

github.com/mastodon/mastodon/i

If you're not comfortable using github, let me know and I can try to post on your behalf.
