Intro: For 33 years I was a professional journalist: reporter>editor>managing editor. I founded & ran, for 12 years, a nonprofit dedicated to helping young people write:

Now I focus on my own projects: a novel that has occupied my mind for 18 years; a journalism project: words, sound, images centered on a courageous opioid addict.

I provide editing support to several professionals & young people. I hope to give and receive feedback with you.

Yet another reason to be so happy with Plume blogging software!

LYNX is a text based command line web browser - ideal for folks with older hardware and less bandwidth.

THIS is what one of my blog posts looks like in LYNX. Granted I don't use a lot of fancy markup so that helps, but it's so clean and readable. AND even using a Pi Zero W as a client, it loads in the time it takes me to blink so well done Plume & well done Sunbeam Technowizards!!!! :_stars: 🧙‍♀️

@lightone @switchingsocial Oh! I forgot #CCMixter, which is a remix site run as a CC project. You can also find CC music by looking at #LibreFM (

@lightone @switchingsocial there's also #Magnatune. #BandCamp has some music licensed under CC, look for "some rights reserved" instead of "all rights reserved" at the bottom of an album page. It's a bit hard to search for CC music on BC though, and the same is true of #SoundCloud. There's also:

@switchingsocial Could you recommend where to look for bands that release their music under CC licences? It would probably mean their songs could be shared on Funkwhale without any copyright violation (giving the proper credits).

Anyone else using I'm enjoying it so much I'm thinking about throwing the 12 bucks on them.

Such a clean writing surface. It inspires me to say very little. I mean a lot in few words.

Have been so caught up with development that I forgot to mention some of the improvements and fixes recently deployed on

- Federation with works now 🎉
- Fixed RSS feeds for "Novel" formatted blogs
- Fixed em dashes and some other glyphs in the default font, Lora
- Moving an anonymous post to a federation-enabled blog now federates that post
- The API now accepts a `created` value when publishing a post -- great for maintaining post dates while importing posts
