Hey #IndieWebSocial. What do folks recommend for a self hosted bookmark manager?

So it’s probably time for my #IndiewebSocial #introduction. 😬

Hi! I’m Piet. I build stuff for the web. Currently working for a startup in #Amsterdam building fun things for the #wood industry. πŸͺ΅

Outside of that I’m generalist nerd interested in #SciFiFantasy, #knitting, #3dPrinting, and #IndieWeb tinkering. I live in #Leiden #Netherlands with my artist wife (https://studiozoen.com) and family including #FridaVanZoen.

I jotted down my current IndieWeb stack over here: https://piet.me/stack/

Small batch, hand made art prints, clothing, accessories and greeting cards brought to life by the hand carved and printed work of Keven van Zoen. Studio Zoen is earth and people friendly, always.

Oh huh. I've been wondering why my #MacbookPro battery stops charging at 80%. Turns out it's a feature not a bug. πŸ›

Frida ended up buried during play time and was totally ok with it. #FridaVanZoen

I kind of love it when this happens.

We were at an #ExPat kids birthday party this morning. Birthday girl heroically waited through 3 variants of happy birthday in English, Spanish, and Dutch before being able to blow her candles out. πŸ‘πŸ₯³πŸŽ‚

Whoop. Smooth migration from @pietvanzoen@mas.to to @pietvanzoen@indieweb.social. I debated starting my own instance, but... ya know... with kid number 2 due very soon I figured giving myself another side project probably wasn't wise. #Adulting

I moved my website #hosting from #GitHubPages to my #Linode VPS. Pretty much solely so I could control redirects and implement this:

https://johnmu.com/2022-mastodon-for-your-domain/

So now I can be found on Mastodon by searching hi@piet.me. 😬 Totally worth it.

Mastodon - be findable with your domain (on Firebase hosting)

While it’s cool to host your own Mastodon server, it’s not really efficient. A simple thing you can do, however, is to make it easier for others to discover your presence, if they already know your website. Try it out – search for β€œjohnmu@johnmu.com” in your Mastodon instance. Also, click β€œfollow” for SEO tips & other bad takes. Why is hosting your own instance inefficient? In short, sending updates between users (followers, followees) means connections between their individual servers, and if everyone has their own server, it’s a lot of network activity.
