That feeling when you want to search for a tag but your instance is to small to give recent/relevant results so you public-search .social only to find the top post on there is the post they federated from you two weeks ago..
I guess no one else is interested 🤷♀️😕
In a decentralised social media it makes sense to host yourself. That's what we decided to do. This instance is run by two nerds, mostly for the why not of it. Feel free to join, and we'll hit you up with an "Hi, who are you?".
