I decided to make a more ruby/programming-focused fedi account since I believe no one should be compelled to read coding toots when you sign up for shitposts

follow it there if you want! @christa@ruby.social. promise I won’t post any more about DHH

my current approach to accounts on the fediverse is figuring out when I don’t want to bother campers with a post, finding an instance with folks I know on it that focuses on that thing and has a decent vibe / moderation, then creating an account that I check and post infrequently. I like it, I find it helpful to think about different conversations with different communities. I want my main homes to be somewhere small and intentional, then use others similar to mailing lists

@christa back on the other site I had two accounts for two different communities and it mostly worked pretty well. I have been keeping my sfba account around because of the better visibility into other accounts on that site but now that you mention it, it could be interesting to do that with more inatances

@sanae I think this is a really good time to try things out across different servers! trying to do more of that and just explore myself without feeling committed

@christa I've been thinking about this since I saw it. like on the one hand it sounds like a lot of work. on the other hand it's just like being in multiple discords, which probably everyone who uses discord is

@christa I think what throws me off about this is I don't really understand how a big instance is supposed to work as a proper community. it is easy to see how the local timeline on a 500 person instance would be very readable. on hachyderm it's a firehose
