If you're on Mastodon and know the web address of someone on the Fediverse, you can use this to follow them.

1. Copy their profile's web address into the Mastodon search box (see screenshots).

2. Click search, this should bring up a link to the profile and a follow button next to it.

3. Click follow!

This works with many kinds of Fediverse addresses including PixelFed, PeerTube and others. Try it!

You can also use this technique with web addresses of individual posts.

Today’s #blacksmith project is practical but I don’t have an immediate use for it.

I saw a similar bolt lock by another blacksmith, Mark from Traditional Iron at Old Petrie Town. Mine isn’t nearly as well finished as his (he’s a working blacksmith doing paid work) but I’m happy I ended up with a functional piece on this my 1 year anniversary of starting to lean blacksmithing.

Time to clear out some room in the plant nursery, the pak choi have been growing next to this year's summer crops. But they're starting to take over and the other plants need more room to develop... Looking forward to today's supper :-)

Had the flue, kind of forgot to water all those chili seeds I'm trying to geminate for a friend. Hope they're ok... Would be a bit embarrassing to explain if they all died...
