If there is an account on Mastodon where you you really don't want to miss a post, you can follow it more closely by adding notifications.
Go to the account's profile, then click the 🔔 button next to the follow button. This will make notifications appear every time there's a new post from that account.
(If you follow an account without the bell button, the posts will still appear in your feed but you won't get a notification when they do.)
Even though I always wanted to make a habit of reading RSS feeds on regular, I always forgot to open my RSS app 😬
I have been using 🔔 for some time to get notified whenever there is a new article.
