3 weeks since the 1st, since asking you to own your notes^1
Still tweeting in Big Chad’s garage or tooting in little Chad’s garage next door?^2 What’s the delay?
Choosing a domain name?^3
Or a service or other path?^4
Or #TwitterMigration to #Mastodon?
Two #IndieWeb alternatives to owning your notes (https://micro.blog/ or https://fed.brid.gy/, either with your own domain) both support migrating your followers from Mastodon.
For example, I migrated my experimental @email@example.com Mastodon account to my own site^5, @tantek.com, thanks to the migration support in Bridgy Fed.
If you’re not sure where you’d like to migrate, you can try https://micro.blog/ for 30 days to see if it works for you.
If you’re a #webDev or otherwise like to tinker, it’s well worth the time to setup your own website with an SSG or CMS^6 or your own code, and grow it incrementally as you post and have time to do so.
Either way, drop by https://chat.indieweb.org/ and ask any questions you have.
There’s a whole community that wants you to succeed, that wants to help you own your notes.
This is day 21 of #100DaysOfIndieWeb #100Days, written the night after.
