This is probably an odd thing to do on your 4th of 5th posting. Perhaps the first few posts on a social network are a lot like a microphone sound-check. You have to scream into it random things just to verify that everything is working.
But perhaps an #introduction
is in order.

Hi everyone, I'm S.. And I'm a furry! Been so since the 90's. It's a hell of a ride.
My platform is blogging. Yes, the thing that Gen-X'ers did during y2k and become internet famous for it. I actually showed up late to the party in around 2014. I was inspired to do so after mistyping console names into the internet and finding myself on the most strangest websites i've ever seen. It's a hard road but I found blogging to be the most rewarding thing I've done within an online community.
A lot of furs here tend to promote something that is their social hub as it were. A lot of you have a twitch account to which you stream for. Others have YouTube accounts. Some of you lucky bastards are Vimeo-Famous to which I especially follow you guys as you are the art-house trendsetters who throw the middle finger to money! I suppose if i was a high powered writer who wanted to be paid for my work I should probably get an account on "Medium."
I'm not.there either as I do hold the belief in server independence. The notion that the entire internet should not be held by a dozen or so major corporations because to be put bluntly no one deserves that level of power.
This doesn't mean I don't see the value in a social network. If I didn't I would not be here. Social networks are designed to get the word out to everyone that "You exist." and a website is your battleship letting everyone know "I am here."
For those interested. I did publish a lengthy article on how to get into the dark arts of blogging: https://www.s-config.com/so-you-want-to-start-a-blog/
S-config.com is my site as well. And even though justfurry.com is still under construction and may not provide a exit-link gateway box warning users that they are about to leave this site. Keep in mind that you should always have a virus checker, no-script, and ad-blockers on your computers. Put that digital condom on. Because even though _I_ do not collect any personal data about you the next website you visit may not be so altruistic.
