For a long time I’ve had my own Mastodon instance at https://dog.estate, something I’ve considered to shut down a while now, largely because of expensive it is to have it running relative to how many users I have on it. But also because I’d like to be in a place where the Home feed is a cool place to find interesting posts and new follows.
This process have taken me back and forward a few times over the last few months. At first I tired out https://social.lol, but the wibe there wasn’t really for me. Then I was back at my own instance. Trying out a few different alternatives to the current hosting to see if I can do it in a less expensive way. Finally landing on https://tenforward.social which seems to be a really good fit for me.
So on to the changes:
- I’ll be shutting down https://dog.estate soon
- I’ll continue to share blog posts to micro.blog, twitter and mastodon
- But “toots” or posts without titles will only be posted to mastodon moving forward.
