Today in LotR (Sept. 22, 3019): it's Bilbo and Frodo's birthdays! Bilbo is 129, Frodo is 51. Also, a year since I started this thread.

i need to limit myself to like 5 minutes a day of thinking about racism in media or i'll just fucking burn out in nihilistic rage

fediverse software wizards: is there a *SIMPLE* way to provide a fediverse-compatible feed from a blog-style website I'm planning to set up?
Ideally, people could follow a specific account here on mastodon which will somehow be driven by content I feed into it from the website, like, when I make a new blog post there's a toot and a link to the post, maybe with an image.
I will probably set something up that's pretty manual, but maybe there are.... ways...?
As some may know, I work on historical climate data. Quite often we have to hide the work we do in bigger proposals that solve some practical problems. (I also got funding from general programs.)

Only Belgian federal institutions can apply, but I am posting hoping more countries will follow.
