Good morning! A post just rolled across my fedi-timeline saying not to post about politics on Mastodon, so I'm here to remind you that:

1 "politics" refers to decision-making about how to live together in groups
2 choosing to not participate in political discussion is saying you support the status quo, and is a political stance
3 abstaining from politics because you feel safe from its impacts is a privilege and a choice to abandon your more vulnerable neighbours

In case you missed it, Mastodon now lets you edit posts 🥳

You can edit any post you've made, and it will send a notification to people who have already interacted with it to prevent any hijinks or shenanigans. It also lets people see the previous versions.

You can access it through some third party apps and your server's website. The iPhone/iPad app Toot! has it for example.

(The official app doesn't yet support it, so it's another good reason to check out third party apps.)

My weekly newsletter is updated again! (monsterromancereviews.substack) I *might* be getting obsessed with creating the most obnoxious, silly titles I can for these newsletters 😆 This week I talk about two Minotaur books AND former Monsters in Love Anthology stories by SJ Sanders and Eva Priest. But I’m turning towards anything related to snowy worlds and the holidays soon! I invite all the recs!

The Orc’s Fated Mate by Elizabeth Austin is a short story that doesn’t skimp on intense primal play and all the, uh, benefits of orc romance. The MC’s relationship was compelling to the point I was almost disappointed Austin didn’t tease out that emotional development. Overall, this was a short and hot read worth throwing onto your monster TBR as an easy, enjoyable book count win.

@feditips for servers that have to answer to the US feds, is anyone discussing DMCA protections and ToS in the Mastodon world?

In my quest to understand what the indie community needs, I realized it might be a good idea to try to actually write a book? My reviewer self feels conflicted and yet intrigued.

Once again, I have my weekly roundup of for all my people 💚 In summary? Much orc. Very breeding kink.

It's #InternationalMensDay, so we're going to introduce you to some remarkable trans men from history today.

One day I think I would like to have my own tech company that built tools for the

It has been rewarding building this little Mastodon server. In the meantime, Amazon misses the ball on not allowing Kindle to be be a more social platform.

There's much more we can do with published works and interacting with readers.

A Reader.

I use Descript for editing the podcast Tales from the Orc Den. I think it is worth it but sometimes I find unexpected AI treasures like "Cause works be lion."🤔 .....Oh! "Orcs be lyin'" 😅

I don’t know if I love or hate preparing ham for the holidays. A cooked ham hock just needs a reheated and maybe a glaze. But the reheating takes forever and then you have to slice up the giant mound of flesh that’s been squatting in your oven all morning. Heaven forbid you make a side dish 🙃

Ah, it is nice that is a thing on Mastodon 🥰 My boys are pleased to pose for the occasion.

Where are all the erotica writers?

Anyone know how to get WordPress to add Mastodon as a social media menu option on your homepage?

Not mentioning this right now on my official admin account because this is absolutely an idea in progress >>> I would like to explore eventually running Smutlandia as a cooperatively owned server with voting co-owners who call the shots on this server rather than just me, your benevolent mistress. Smutlandia would always continue to be open and free to use to anyone. If it gets big enough, I think it is for the good of the community to explore spreading ownership.

I am hoping this increased attention to Mastodon gives it the funds it really needs to better its development and maintenance 🤞🤞

Handy little flowchart making the rounds - posting here for those of us that like a visual representation.

New Discord is up admin’d by @WhereNsMeet aimed at smut peddlers off many kinds, including my fellow monster mashers 😈 Check it out here for yourself! >>> Invite expires in 7 days.

Marriage and children with @the_yeti can lead to unique experiences. Like talking about weaning the small yeti and then deciding if third testicles were a thing then the third testicle would be a “tail testicle”.

I love the hashtag #SapphicMigration. I am imagining flocks of lesbians in U-Hauls heading south for winter.
