#introduction Hello, Fediverse! My name is Brandon. I have been blogging since 2008. I write about productivity, technology, books, religion, coffee and tea, and Texas. I joined Mastodon to share my work and learn from other writers, but also to escape Twitter, which has proven to be useful for neither of these things. You can find my blog at http://brandonsnotepad.wordpress.com.
Hay algo que extraño de los «tiempos aquellos» en los que no había Internet. Cuando alguien publicaba algo entonces, había muchísimo trabajo detrás: escritor, revisor, editor, corrector de estilo, etc. Hoy cualquiera publica lo que quiera.
¡Y está bien!… pero tampoco tanto. Muchos adoptaron su derecho a publicar lo que quieran, pero olvidaron que también tienen la responsabilidad de publicar adecuadamente. Toda la desinformación que hay hoy es una mera consecuencia de todo ello.
1. Search for a word using the search bar in left column
2. Click on a result in the hashtag section to view in the dynamic column
3. Click the settings button in the upper right of the dynamic column and check 'pin'
4. A new dynamic column should open automatically on the right
5. Organize columns using the < > buttons also in settings
We need #instance columns too!
Last week was good! Monday was a holiday, but I was able to post blog entries on each of the four workdays. This week? Not so much. Lots of research and a little bit of outlining, but no entries even drafted yet. Did some maintenance today instead of writing.
This. Get rid of the patent system. I'm serious. I believe it does way more harm than the little good it does.
We can get money collected for medical research. We can't get money collected to overthrow the governments that enforce patents. (Hint: they own the money 😅)

god it feels so weird that a bunch of terminally-online mastodon folks are liking and boosting a post about the internet being bad for mh lmao. I don't think I'm gonna leave the internet but I need to seriously redefine my relationship with it....again. I feel that every time I find something better, there are parts about it that are always the same.
Hey Mastodon! I've been bragging about you.
Katz Texas Hill Country Pecan Coffee review has been posted!
"Are you having hot chocolate or coffee?" she asked.
"Coffee, please." I replied.
"Are you sure? It's snowing. Hot chocolate and snow kinda go together."
I had to give her that, but then my thoughts snapped sharply to the ubiquity of coffee and its contributions to the progress of mankind.
"Yes, but coffee goes with everything...from petting the kittens on the back porch to...well...war."

When you feel like you have nothing left to say, nothing left to #write about that hasn’t already been written, remember that the real #challenge isn’t novelty, but to deliver timeless messages to a new #audience in a novel way. This is not new and you are not alone.
Nothing under the sun is new, neither is any man able to say: Behold this is new: for it hath already gone before in the ages that were before us.
Just doing some random searching on Mastodon tonight and ended up in comic book land. I can’t believe that a search on the #TMNT hashtag yielded zero pics of the original #comic. Thank you so much, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, for providing hours upon hours of #turtle-tainment over the years. [And I weep for what has become of your magnum opus.]
