I've read about this place of a few days. I thought I'd join.
#introduction New to the Fediverse, still finding my way around. I'm a Brazilian who fell in love with winter living in Canada. I'm reading all the time (sci-fi and fantasy). I love hiking, writing, (not all) heavy metal music, tea and lots of quiet time.

Made more progress on my weekend project, a tool for generating images like this for social media.
Right now, it's an open source command-line tool written in Go, with a few configurable options. You can find the AGPL-licensed code on GitHub and start using it now!
Working on a small tool to generate an image from a bit of text, made especially for any WriteFreely-based blog.
Basically, you'll use this to highlight something you wrote along with your blog URL, so you can then share it to Pixelfed or Instagram.
#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.
