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.
@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.
