Want to Comment?

So, you want to comment on something on this page. I get it. Hopefully you have something nice to say. I fully understand and I want to support your desire to comment, but there's a few things I also want to do.

  1. I want to respect your privacy. many comment systems are designed to suck as much information out of you as possible so companies like Google or Amazon can sell you products. I don't even want to be involved in that mess.
  2. I don't want to spend all my time dealing with comment systems. There are comment systems out there that do respect your privacy, but frankly I barely have time to have a blog let alone deal with all the minutia of a comment system.

So, how do I work around those two points and still let you comment?

Well, this blog is powered by my friends at Write.As. I've configued the option to federate my posts out into the Fediverse so my blog can be followed there. If you don't already have an account, I'd highly suggest going to JoinMastodon and clicking the “Get Started” button. Choose an instance that works for you, and once your privacy respecting account is setup, you can find my blog posts listed under @blog at mikestone.me. You can also find me @mike@fosstodon.org if you have any questions or concerns.

I hope to hear from you soon!
