It’s a great idea Dee, I think I have written in English but might have written a couple of Welsh words. I must try harder, so this will encourage me!
Due to Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter, people have been posting about various alternatives and Mastodon was mentioned. This reminded me that toot.wales (Tŵt Cymru) is actually a Mastodon instance (don’t worry about the jargon, I don’t!) and I also remembered that I created an account back in 2019 when this thread was first started.
Anyway, I looked in again (my login still worked) and I discovered that it’s doing well. I didn’t stick with it back in 2019 because no one seemed to be posting and it was like speaking in an empty room, but I’m finding it a great way to write a small thing each day in Welsh. You have more characters than Twitter, so I can post bilingually and people there seem really friendly. If you tried it a few years ago, but dropped out, you could try looking in there again.
Here’s the link: https://toot.wales/web/home
I’ve started using mastodon as well,@yogi0704 if anyone wants to follow. Might be useful for us SSIW’s to practice writing as Maragret mentioned previously
I’ve found you and followed you.
Give it a go
Hi Tony. Are you still on Tŵt. I’m John Young @johnyoungc45
Just followed you. Its a bit busier on there now with Twitter refugees.
PS Guyhirn is a nice place. I remember working on the bridge and road.
Diolch John, just followed you back
BTW, Guyhirn bridge has now been widened to 3 lanes and the roundabout has been made a lot larger. It has improved the flow of traffic considerably.
