I joined Ello today.
If you can get an invite, I recommend getting set up. It’s very calm and simple. Lots of breathing room.
You can comment but there are no “like” buttons or “favorites.” I write a lot of jokes and I get obsessed seeing responses, similar to being on stage telling a joke, getting the feedback of the audience.
On Ello there is none of that, which to my surprise is oddly calming. I don’t have to see that NO ONE likes a joke or get my ego inflated that one went really well. Always fleeting, regardless of the high or low.
It’s a lot easier on the brain. I’m excited to be a part of it. Find me @lokirby!
