Adding Symphora, my WordPress blog, to the #fediverse via ActivityPub (Take 2)

Second try. Probably need to be subscribed first, then post.

Why just join a Mastodon instance if I can turn my entire blog in to a node in the federated social network space? This is the first post that attempts this feat.

See you on the other side!

The prompt says “Start writing” so, sure, I’ll just start writing. I’m on my phone at the moment so writing is me like swiping but it does have a certain cursive feel to it once you get going.
