Other social networking options are available!
15-20 years ago I'd have said forums were the best social network, I spent countless hours on forums such as Neowin/Hydrogen Audio sharing and discussing Windows XP customisation, Foobar2000 configs and making a lot of friends off of that niche interest. I still keep in touch with one or two of them today.
Beyond that, Twitter just became another touch point for these early forum connections (and then eventually the predominant touch point). It was always nice to rediscover old acquaintances.
Blog engagement has always been secondary for me, but I guess that's due to using Twitter as the main sharing/discussion point rather than hosting comments.
Offline, local Meetup groups, and then Slack/Discord discussions relating to those groups, have been a great way to grow ones network of friends.
I'm finding that moving to Webmentions/ Indieweb/ Fediverse/ Mastodon and hosting my own social feed as i do on social.omgmog.net seems to have more of a community buzz.
I suppose as a Jekyll/Github Pages user I've grown used to the levels of redundancy afforded by using the platform, and it's pretty neat for my development process to be so transparent (if anybody is bothered to look!)
If you're using Github and have a good number of followers, you also get a bit of syndication for free in the form of your commits showing up on your followers' timelines.
The only downside I've found is that I tend to have multiple drafts, on multiple clones of my blog repository across multiple machines, and I tend to lose stuff if I don't finish writing and publish in a timely manner!
It's 2022 and #CSS :only-child isn't aware of text nodes?
I'm trying to select an image that is the only direct descender of an element, with no text node siblings, e.g.:
div img:only-child will select this img in both cases, as will div img:first-child and div img:last-child
Am I missing something?
Alright, looks as if I've got this Known thing working!
