For those that joined #Mastodon and grabbed the first server they could find, but would prefer to #migrate to a different one, I created a short guide on how to do this quickly and easily.
It also allows you to easily move any followers across to your new profile and leaves a redirection on your old profile for those that find it.😁👍

I'd love if you could share it among your networks to help those that will invariably need it.

The main points I want to make with this story:

Treat the gods like they are guests:

-Wash yourself before offering or praying anything just like you would wash yourself before guests arrive.

-Offer what you can without draining yourself off from supplies.

-The Gods may have favourites, but the more important thing is the intention of an offering made than what is offered

no shame in mistakes/ embarassments:

-if you slip your tongue, you flatulate or burp or sneeze, excuse yourself and continue. These things are natural/ normal

Speek freely:

-have no fear. The gods do not judge every mistake you make.

-they apreciate if you acknowledge a mistake and make it well again by excusing yourself and continuing or starting over.

Have no fear. The gods are with you.

On the birdside/site, my following was not as diverse as I wanted it to be. Here I don't know any tools to check, yet I want to actively work on a more diverse group right from the start:

- more women
- more non western people
- more BIPOC
- more neurodiversity
(in agile, tech, etc)

Will you boost this so I can find more of these people?

Thanks.

Tonight’s feature film: Nope.

Shame I had it spoiled for me by a Tumblr GIF set but still looking forward to the build and reveal.

CW: Being Fat, and Being Dead (you know you're interested :P) 

Important conversations for people (like me) and family members or loved ones of fat individuals.

Video: Dying Fat, done by Ask a Mortician (Caitlin Doughty)

Remove the stigma of a) being fat and b) , and talk about stuff.

What kind of stuff do we as fat people need to talk about? The tough stuff, like , , , , , , etc.

Even cremation may require you to source out a specific location depending on needs, so don't @ me with "I'm gonna be a tree!" because to be a tree, they're going to have to properly break you down into itty bitty bits first.

It's OK to be fat, but just remember the world (in life and death) is still not really built for us as well as it should be.

“Time is an enormous, long river, and I’m standing in it, just as you’re standing in it. My elders are the tributaries, and everything they thought and every struggle they went through and everything they gave their lives to, and every song they created, and every poem that they laid down flows down to me – and if I take the time to ask, and if I take the time to see, and if I take the time to reach out, I can build that bridge between my world and theirs. I can reach down into that river and take out what I need to get through this world.”

Yearly reminder to not give money to the Salvation Army. It is not a charity, it's a fundamentalist Christian organization that supports anti-queer policies. Support mutual aid resources instead.

#SalvationArmy

My husband showed this to me with a knowing smile.

It took me 5 minutes to read because I was hit with a new fit of laughter every couple of words.

Husband knows my sense of humor 😂

Seasonal reminder: Alcohol is a completely legal drug that destroys lives, relationships and families. Don't make it hard for people who are trying to stay sober to enjoy festivities and functions.

I know not everyone on Pagan.Plus is interested in politics, but its a topic I do talk about a lot. So, to avoid annoying all the good Pagans, Heathens and Witches here, i've started a new account on another instance *just* for that. On the off-chance anyone is at all interested in chatting about politics, that account can be found at @Kriselda@universeodon.com.

Thanks!

On my list, I'm counting a series as a single "book" since all the individual books together tell a single story. And because if I didn't, there wouldn't be much variety on my list 😜

1. The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley (single book)
2. The Belgariad by David Eddings
3. The Circle of Ceridwen by Octavia Randolph
4. The Road to Valhalla by Melanie Katsak
5. All the President's Men by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward
6. Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer
7. The Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule

Addendum on my accessibility advice, refining it based on feedback/questions 

After answering many questions on and used by , , , people, I think it would be good to summarise them in their refined forms in one spot for easy reference.
1. Writing well as a general advice stands, however, I wrote my post in English and naturally included some points specific to English. Screen readers are programmed to work best with languages according to their spelling conventions regarding capitalisation, punctuation, and symbol usage; covering anything from casual to academic writing styles. Substituting letters with symbols/numbers falls outside of such conventions, meaning words will not read correctly.
2. , and the time it takes to write them, is very much appreciated, regardless of length or level of detail. However, the more detail you can put in the more we can appreciate the image and your reasons for sharing it.
3. Multi-word hashtags in CamelCase, yes: . It does not matter where you place them; either in the post's text or at the end. The best analogy for screen reader users being able to deal with hashtags in text is that we've become used to them in the same way we're used to people saying "uh", "ummm", or other extraneous vocalisations when talking.
Bonus: By all means, use emojis for that extra bit of expression, but in moderation.
Final thoughts: Screen readers can be customised by the user to make it work best for them, including minimising any annoyances. The above points will help loads regarding shared content. Assume that a screen reader user has optimised their settings to deal with the rest.
Once again, thanks for reading! 😘
