Description

Since 2020, I've been trying to help people use the Fediverse, and encourage the Fedi to grow, through five accounts and five websites:

ACCOUNTS:

  • FediFollows - Posting recommended handpicked accounts to follow every day on specific themes and topics

  • FediTips - Posting hints and tips every day about using Mastodon and the rest of the Fediverse, as well as responding to requests for help.

  • FediVideo - Boosting videos and livestreams from the Fediverse every day

  • FediGarden - Highlighting nice, reliable Fediverse servers every day

  • Grow Your Own Services - Posting hints and tips every day for non-technical people who want to create their own online social networks, personal clouds, messenger services etc through managed hosting providers

WEBSITES:

  • Fedi.Tips - Website containing all the tips posted on the FediTips account, organised by category

  • Fedi.Directory - Website listing the accounts recommended on the FediFollows account, organised by category

  • Fedi.Video - PeerTube server providing a safe easy way to discover interesting safe videos. Federated on an allowlist basis with manually curated accounts, to ensure nothing nasty appears on the site. Also features manually maintained themed playlists to help people discover interesting content.

  • Fedi.Garden - Website listing nice, reliable small and medium-sized Fediverse servers open for new members. All listed servers comply with specific rules about responsible content moderation and technical reliability.

  • Grow Your Own Services - Website helping non-technical people to host their own online services through managed hosting providers. The site covers making your own social networks and making your own personal cloud services, and assumes no technical knowledge.

I also have a quieter personal account called FediThing, which is what I named this profile after.
