Just ordered far too many little stickers of my happy pepper (:happy_pepper:) that @andycarolan designed for me, based on my very silly bell pepper thread (https://front-end.social/@sarajw/109994451332222396)

If you're going to @btconf in Düsseldorf or in Amsterdam then you can totally have one, or several!

Here's a preview, they'll be about 3x3 cm:

Morning!

I had a weird sleep... I was so tired that I went to bed at 2130. But then I woke up again, totally refreshed at 0030. So, I had cereal, watched some Star Trek, then woke up on the sofa at 0430.

Went back to bed and watched YT for a bit 🤔

@maique Any night that ends with a bowl of cereal, is a wild night!

I want to promote my ko-fi stuff a bit more, but I'm reluctant to use mainstrram platforms like Instgram and Thrads because I don't believe in their values or trust them.

As I don’t really do video, I feel that I would be a bit out of place on TikTok and Twitch...

Bluesky is another option, which I am using sometimes... I do need to setup up crossposting somehow... maybe.

Am I missing something?

I am open to constructive suggestions.

andycarolan,

@robb I was hopeful that Ko-fi would support RSS feeds on the creator page, but at the moment, they don't. I and other ambassadors have suggested it, so hopefully it's something they can implement.

Is it possible to crosspost from your platform? I thought it needed RSS?

@Ric Thanks! Will look :)

@habibcham 90% of my work comes from word of mouth, which is always nice. I don't promote my stuff other than on social media.

Ko-fi is just a nice side-hustle, which can lead to other work. I like giving stuff away on there. I have plans to offer stickers and vinyl decals on there soon, so it would be nice to find an avenue to promote it a bit more.

Not a fan of Meta's platforms though... ugh.

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@robb Oh wow... ok, I didn't realise that the mastodon profile has a .rss feed 🤯

I will have a look at how this would setup on Echofeed a bit later. Thanks!

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@robb That probably won't affect me, as I don't really post all that many images... I don't think 🤔

How does EF manage truncation when posting to BS? I know it has a lower limit than this Mastodon instance.

There's an event that I'm going to in a few weeks.

But there's also events either side of it, in the same area, which I would like to go to. It's about a 3 hour trip each way, each time + fuel + hotels + food + tickets.

I'm not sure I can do it all this year.

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

Ideally, I would rent an AirBNB for a week, and go to at least two of the events, but again, that's a lot of money to splash out.

I'm torn.

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@sarajw Yes, well... it's the number of trips there and back that would differ lol. Or a hotel for a week.

It's purely social.. no real chance of networking.

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@sarajw It just goes from a weekend away to effectively a full holiday lol... need to count the pennies.

The UK isn't very good value any more... and a week away here will likely cost more than going somewhere warmer lol.

Yup, I can understand it about the train rebookings etc.

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@tomk Thanks for the thoughts... I will look into it.

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@sarajw Yup, it's pure profiteering here with the whole half term thing. Parents get fined if they remove their child/children from school in term time too.

Yay capitalism! 🙁

The coffee I made four hours ago is cold.

What hell is this?!

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@sinky Normally coffee doesn't last long enough to need additional warmth. I have a Yeti cup that keeps it warm for hours anyway lol

for some reason, I keep falling asleep on the couch 😫

@ShannonMT Morning Shannon! Oh wow yes... Squid games! That was a strange show lol

I imagine themed piercing/ink is quite rare!

Have a great day! x
