@katherined I use all of those and more alternatives daily - I did some videos on each option in a playlist at https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdSTEdM8Pkf0LQS0RF_QsSPw9MoDr8hbD
@katherined I checked out Bookwyrn, but the instance I picked was so slow, and importing from Goodreads was error-prone.
I may try to use it again, but not import any of my old data.
@mortendk Not sure it would work, sounds like overkill.
@email@example.com for this account I'm using @firstname.lastname@example.org which is a single-user microblogging platform. It is very basic, but includes most fediverse features such as user / post lookup, following other users, viewing a stream of followed user posts, dms, etc etc. I also have secondary accounts on a couple of Mastodon instances where I boost posts made on my microblog.
@katherined enjoying my self-hosted pixelfed instance as a chilled instagram experience so to speak
@katherined I like and used in the past peertube, and it is quite cool because I can follow a peertube channel from mastodon as if was a regular user, because it is a regular user.
It's videos show in my mastodon feed like any other user I follow feed, and I can watch and reply to it, and my replies show up in the comment section of the video.
So no need to make a post on mastodon with the link to the video, You just publish and it is available on the fediverse like a post.
For example this is the video channel for The Linux Experiment.
Just use the link in the search bar, on mastodon and you have the option to follow as a user.
@joao Thanks! I need to check this out a bit more.
@katherined another example that is castopd, the fedeverse version of a podcast service, you can also follow and comment from mastodon or others:
@katherined I probably - obviously - when I read your examples and other in the thread am not even aware of all of the fediverse! I knew about Pixelfed, have looked at it and have a mental note to one day explore more and possibly also start to share on Pixelfed.
