Do you have a WordPress Blog?
Did you know you can connect it to the Fediverse so that people on Mastodon can follow you and comment on your posts?
It works through the WordPress ActivityPub plugin:
(You may also be able to find this by searching for "ActivityPub" in the plugins section of your WordPress blog)
If you have any comments or questions, the plugin's developer is on the Fediverse at @pfefferle
If you install the plugin on your blog, it will give your blog a Fediverse address that people can follow from Mastodon, Friendica etc.
For example, the plugin's developer has a blog at @firstname.lastname@example.org
It means your blog posts will appear on the Fediverse (just like any other post), and people will be able to comment, like them, share them etc. They will also be able to follow your blog from within the Fediverse just like following any other account.
The comments would appear on the blog itself too.
For example, here is a post from the developer's blog with a comment from the fediverse below it:
(The Fediverse comment is by "Victor Venema", click on the name to see the Fedi account that posted it.)
Unfortunately, if you don't pay for an online service up front, they will usually find some other way to get the money from you (through selling your personal data etc) 😞 as servers cost money to run, in staff and electricity.
Wordpress sites are are very easy to use though, that's why they have become so popular. The interface should be similar to wordpress.com but you can have more plugins etc.
