Okay, I ought to do an #introducion
I'm in BNE but moved back from MEL to live with and look after my elderly parents as I reckon it's better for people to age-in-place.
I don't often toot but that's because:
a) I've come from bird site which I used as a curated source of journalism & info so I was largely passive; I had nothing to say.
b) I'm essentially introverted & shy; I tend not to say much, especially in crowds.
c) I don't really understand the point of social media; I don't have a sense of self-importance to believe that my opinion is worth expressing publicly.
But I do really like this bne.social instance so I will make an effort to be more engaged.
@PaulMcEwan Great intro! And welcome to the site :)
I kinda hope it's more community than social media, but either way I hope you find what you'e after 👍
@PaulMcEwan on point C, it doesn’t have to be opinions. You might have some insight on something that others might find interesting. You might make things and just want to put it out there, as once again, people be (and probably are) interested.
Or you might just have pet photos and everyone likes those ;-)
@david True: I ought to put more weight on "social" rather than "media".
I wish I had pets for photos 😥. I did have two cats but one died (at 18YO so not unexpected) and one I left in Melbourne with my flatmate as she was so attached to him.
Maybe I could toot photos of the possums my Mum feeds at night. 😄
