I have a Mastodon account but I'm too socially anxious to actually post there

I'm also too socially anxious to post here but the comment format helps me get over it sometimes

Feels more conversational vs shouting into the void vibe.

That's why I've never understood microblogging. I have a mastodon it just seems totally pointless tho.

The illusion of anonymity helps a lot. Nobody knows what we look like or what our net worth is or what gross habits we have, we're all on even playing ground here, sharing our thoughts as anonymous humans.

I get you. I have a private journal that I post my thoughts on, as I don't want some random person I don't know chiming in.

I prefer the communities method more, since slows down my over sharing

You can expect more interaction on the showethought itself. IMO microblogs are more about poster, thread style forum is for a topic.

If the options are u/showerthoughts or ~~Twitter~~ X, then I choose u/showerthoughts.

I agree. Things are much more dignified over here.

Not nearly as racist, though

This just in: @gregorum@lemm.ee admits to not knowing what the fediverse is – on the fediverse.

I'm gonna pretend like I didn't post this on microblogging fedi 2 months ago already

[-] AgentGrimstone@lemmy.world 1 points 1 month ago

Is there an actual mind dump community? I would have been a bigger Twitter user if I didn't feel like I was speaking into a void.

A "Showerthought" is a simple term used to describe the thoughts that pop into your head while you're doing everyday things like taking a shower, driving, or just daydreaming. The best ones are thoughts that many people can relate to and they find something funny or interesting in regular stuff.
