Hey friends, intro incoming:
I'm a 20-something who thinks a lot. I'll be sharing thoughts and writing here.
Also, I love a lot of things. In no particular order: cats (mine and all), plants, reading, dogs (mine and all), animals, plants, mountains, snow, video games (currently Overwatch), husband (just mine), productivity, self improvement, communication skills, colors, feelings, mom (mine and all), empaths, Totoro, gnomes, cherries, Head Space app, Kung Pow, silence.

Hello world of Mastodon. I am new here and will now introduce myself. I’m a 40 year old journalist living in Stockholm, Sweden. I’m a dad of three (got twins), I like books, blogging, swimrun and alternative music. Next week I start a new job as news chief at a magazine and website covering real estate and construction businesses as well as urban planning.
Should we ask the Internet Archive not to archive Writing.Exchange toots, as mentioned here?
Fun thing to do at the library: walk through the aisles until a book's spine catches your eye. Ideally it's a pretty well-worn book; for this technique to work it needs to have had a fair number of readers over the years.
Grasp the book's spine and hold it so the pages hang down. Find a an air gap where the pages naturally hang open, and read those pages.
Today I found this lovely passage on randomness/entropy in a book called "Paradox" by Jim Al-Khalili.
Hmm, wonder what's going on with these sites... #WriteFreely instances with different branding and a suspiciously large number of users / posts 🤔
You can follow all of these directly from the fediverse!

It is proven! I am is on Keybase: https://keybase.io/is/sigchain#76a265056ae0de45b601959ff48d65d18dbdff2f6a0cbf7e6de43b499408f9010f
This would be remote, contract-based work for now, with a chance to go full-time later in the year (assuming all continues going well). You'd be creating free / open source software.
Some neat things about our #WritingExchange Mastodon instance:
We have a public directory, where you can discover writers here:
(Anyone on our instance can add themselves from their profile settings.)
You can also browse our local timeline without being a registered user:
nature, words, dogs, software, privacy, music, and the moment.
