Is this a good idea? I don't know yet. Already I'm having trouble deciding what to put on which account, and what to do about the fact that some people are following me on both. I want to post academic/professional stuff to my "personal" mastodon and birdsite accounts, but then some people see them twice.

Sigh. We'll see how this goes.

@chendricks those who follow you both here and over at the bird site are probably literate enough re the use of social media that duplication is not an issue. people will understand

as to being whole and undivided
*thinks about it*
*remembers that I have ten masto accounts for different specific purposes*
I do not think I have anything to say to that

Christina Hendricks @chendricks

@Sargoth Yeah, probably true! And they can just scroll through the duplicates easily.

And I love your different accounts, especially cat aspect! 🐱

@chendricks it's all about giving yourself permission to write things
and to have that permission be socially understood

bulding oneself a discursive home, as it were

@Sargoth and to have the permission to write what you want where, trying to somehow be different in different places and those who want to see one part can focus on that. Or all of it if they want to take the time.

I tried this before and had one birdsite acct for my classes and one for just me. But as a faculty member I didn't see the need to compartmentalize like that. As almost admin now I feel the need for a more professional persona in one acct & can play in the other.

@chendricks the need to splinter does vary at times. like most things it is not a constant, but a process

I sense it is the opposite of Yoda's famous advice: there is no do, only try ^^
